Highway 12

Highway 12 Scenic Byway begins outside Zion National Park and continues to Torrey, UT (near the entrance to Capitol Reef NP) and was about as interesting as visiting the parks themselves. Can you spot the road in this first picture?I wanted a picture of this swiss cheese-like rock, but realized that it wouldn't look as big without some perspective. So I shimmied (no really, I did!) into one of the holes.

In the dry dry air, metal and wood things seem to last much longer. We spied this old truck from the highway and had to get a picture.

For more information on this scenic highway, click here: If you are out that way and don't take this highway, you are missing out on beautiful scenery! And the excitement of a road that rides the ridge of a mountain with steep drop offs on both sides. You don't want to miss that, do you? ;)
