This highway goes through very high elevations. The views are breathtaking! We drove through in a car, but want to go back on the Harley. I highly recommend this highway, but remember it's only open in warmer months.

Absolutely incredible. Best and most scenic drive in the country imo and I’m not sure it’s close. 12 in Utah, 89 in multiple states, 1 in Florida and Going to The Sun Road are all great, but this beats them all.
