This drive started out in a blizzard for us. We could not see the distant rock formations but could see the ones close up. It was still pretty. Then the sun came out and we were at the river overlook. Breathtaking with the new snow and clouds in the blue sky.
We have traveled this off road trail quite a bit, This last time was not a good ride. Due to all the rains, it was a very harsh trail. Not bumpy but "harsh". It will take some time to dirty up and smooth out a bit.
