It's a long drive to the 'Road end point' in the canyon, but it's really worth your time. You have amazing views. There are a lot of good places to stop and take pictures. When in the area, don't skipp this part!

Beautiful place. Not crowded at all. Clean and quiet. Take road to Panoramic Point. You will think the drive is crazy, but the view is well worth the long and windy road
