There’s plenty see from the road without entering the park, thus saving yourself $20. Driving along Utah 13 look out for Mile Marker 13 – known as Forrest Gump Point. This is where Forrest Gump ended his cross country run. Don’t worry if you miss...More

I didn't realize why all these people were in the middle of the road for this iconic shot....but now I see why. Middle of October was light in traffic...and cloudy, rainy day helped the visual. It's a once in a lifetime experience.

While there, I can also support that locals do not wait for tourists. The best way to get aw some shots is to 1) get your camera set up and 2) get someone to spot for you. It’s worth having time and patience it’s beautiful
