What glorious views to be had! I hadn’t been up here for many years. We went up to get views of the area and wow! The drive is a little challenging but well worth it.

We visited in Summer when they wasn't any snow (obviously!). However, the views were remarkable (pun intended) as we had a great trip up! I can't wait to see what it looks like in winter during our next trip!

Hi Daniel, Thanks for your comments, I couldn't agree more on the scenery that we have in our back yard. Winter time opens up another whole scene when the snow is on the ground - might see you then?

Great review Steve, especially on the road/access. If driven appropriately you won't have any issues and once on site the scenery is totally awesome. I know because I drive that road every day to get to my job and it never gets boring! Cheers Ross.
