My mom & I were hoping to take some photos while enjoying the scenic drive. Our spouses and grand/great grand son were enjoying the Natural Entrance tour at the caverns. The Guide brochure box was empty at the start of the one way drive loop. That should have been our first clue. After starting the drive, we noticed previous fire damage on this route. We had seen the fire damage on the ride up to the Visitor Center but had not realized that it had been so large as to make it's way up to this area. Once you get near the 'Rattlesnake Canyon' area. (There is a sign on the left side of the road). Vegetation is greener and photos of the plants turned out quite picturesque. Also shots of the canyon with the distant mountains...The drive seems LONGER than 9.5 miles. We drove this in a Ford Taurus and had no problems with the gravel road.
