A parking lot on the Utah Scenic Byway 12 in the middle of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument on a mountain ridge.The scenic byway 12 goes all the way up and down in curves but it easy to drive and pays with a remarkable view into the wide range of the area on both sides of the highway. The Scenic Byway 12 is a perfect Highway when visiting the area as it goes directly through this wonderful area with changing views around each corner.
