Great scenic highway with spectacular views of red rocks and the surrounding mountains and also alpine meadows

The Scenic HWY 12 is a great stretch en route to Bryce Canyon. Stop at the overlooks and take in the beautiful surrounding scenery. The red rocks are spectacular!

Another scenic drive

This is just another incredibly scenic drive in Utah. The rocks can get so orange/red. You're going to want to keep your camera with you.

Beautiful Scenery

The scenery changes drastically as you make your way down the highway. There are pine trees, vast canyons, and unique rock formations.

Did this drive with my mama, in a convertible - honestly, consider renting on for your trip! You’re able to take in SO much more :) Beautiful drive, highly recommend!

Don't leave your camera on your roof!

Views were so pretty I forgot I'd left the camera on top of my car. Unfortunate, but it survived the fall! Drive slow and take it all in, it's a beautiful stretch of road.

Top 5 roads in America

I love driving scenic byways across America. This road is one of my top 5. The red rock buttes, distant mountains, desert wildlife, and weird roadside attractions make this a real life “cars” movie scene.
