Get off the interstate and look around and slow down. I have stopped there numerous times, always a beautiful site. The facilities have improved over time.

It was just a little hazy but the overlook is worth the short trip up the mountain! It is a shame that the building was vandalized and there were carvings in the railing. People have no respect for the public access to our countries beauty.

Beautiful view on a clear day and you will have the overlook all to yourself. It is even more interesting when you can watch the fog roll in.
