  • Wow. A landscape I’ve never seen or could even imagine before. So so so beautiful. If I were a dinosaur, you’d probably find me here. Looks like a perfect roaming ground. We only saw the ‘bend’ but from what I understand there’s loads of outdoorsy stuff to do here. To get to our viewpoint, we had to take a narrow gravel road. It was hilarious and scary and fun. Enjoy!
  • A-MA-ZING!! Do take the drive up there and i swear it’s worth the sweat you will endure driving on this narrow path. Breathtaking view.
