Breath taking waterfall views

Make sure to pull over and take in the view! It's worth the time. Several beautiful waterfalls make this a favorite spot for photography.

Wow! Bridal Veil and Horsetail Falls. Worthington Glacier, Keystone Canyon, Thompson Pass. You almost become numb to the beauty around each corner. Horsetail falls is right there you can touch the water if you want. There are many smaller falls on this route, but those are the biggest.

An absolutely beautiful drive, with two waterfalls that can be seen from the road. Out feels like you're driving through a 3D painting.
