What an amazing and scenic drive. It's also an admirable engineering feat, so slow down and enjoy. There are numerous places to stop and lots of "attractions": lodges, restaurants, fishing holes, trading posts, spas, campgrounds, picnic spots and amazing hikes. I've been in the fall, with the leaves turning, and in the winter, with snow frosting the scenery and both times were so enjoyable and memorable. Can't recommend highly enough!
