Beautiful one way drive with plenty of opportunities for picture taking of the unusual landscape. One would never expect the beauty of these unusual and colorful formations a short distance from the main road. Don't miss it!

Quick drive with nice views. Good photo ops. We drove around the winding road and stopped frequently for pictures. It's a short one-way drive, no hiking.
