There were 18 view points along a scenic drive. Ponderosa Point was one of those we had enjoyed the most. With a elevation of 8,904, it was lightly snowing while we stopped there on November 21. The view was breath taking.

So much beauty in this park, Ponderosa was very impressive. My family enjoyed ever overlook. The Aspen trees were turning yellow and were just beautiful today. We had rain and fog but still it was a great stop.
