  • A great vantage point to view the Kawuneeche Valley with the Colorado River flowing through it and the Never Summer Mountains framing it all in. We were fortunate to view it in a break of a rain storm, this definitely enhanced the grandeur of the scene.
  • When the curve is not crowded, it is worth the stop. You can see so many peaks and so far into the distance. Especially if you have a long lens. If the lot is crowded, come back another time if you can. I am averse to crowds so I tend to visit at off-hours so I can usually get a good viewing spot. And stay as long as I want. But, if you are there at peak times, be considerate of others.
