    Thanks for sharing. I've been on that road in Canyonlands, never had any photos though.

    Just down the road near Mexican Hat, UT is another great one called the Moki Dugway. It was a big surprise because none of the switchbacks show up on the map.

    Yikes! My heart gets going enough on roads like the MW auto road, the PCH around Big Sur. I'm afraid my chest would explode on these! At least the traffic should be light...
