The road less travelled.

                                      Utah state highway 12.

                                      Its nickname: "A Journey Through Time Scenic Byway".

                                      One of the most scenic highways in North America. I'll agree with that....

Beautiful shot of this extraordinary vista, Frank! Wasn't it amazing to come around the curve and see this!

What an amazing view and I think this is one of the areas that when you go in, never underestimate 'nature', go wel prepared and take enough fuel with you in the car...
Amazing.....Big birds as in eagles??
Frank L Croston.: Very true, Astrid, you are in the 'wild'..We think they were Turkey Vultures, not Eagles, but still impressive!
And to think this is in the same state with everything else you have shown us!
Frank L Croston.: Utah is soooo impressive, Ginnie.

The loneliness of the desert- but the desert is living, look at all the green!
Frank L Croston.: Lots to see in the desert, including greenery, Philine.
You wouldn't want to break down! Amazing scene one again
Frank L Croston.: Nope! Thanks, Bill.
It looks a fabulous road Frank, but not somewhere that I would wish to break down or run out of fuel.
Frank L Croston.: Great for driving, Andrew, but as you say....

The kind of place I like to spend time in. Excellent picture.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, louis.
What amazing texture show up.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mary.
I can't get over how barren it all is, not a place to run into trouble with the car.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Brian...
the map man is at it again Frank... great panorama... i can see the markings and the results of the ice age scraping its way across this valley....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Peter.
I'll take your word for it, Frank - that stretch looks far from scenic!
Frank L Croston.: This certainly wasn't the best bit, Tom...But the rest of it was spectacular.
A grand view...
Frank L Croston.: It certainly is, Larry.
