We drove in on this road with snow coming down, which was lovely and cold. It's true that you have to get out of your car and walk a bit to really see the fantastic geography (but it's good for you). We hiked the Elephant Hill - Chesler Park Trail with lots of up and down on slickrock--quite challenging but doable and amazing formations all around. Then driving back out, the sun was beginning to set and the scenery just lit up. Enormous red rock mesas on either side. Stunning!
