A Most Beautiful Drive, Upper Zion, UT 2014

(1 in a multiple picture album)

I have driven many roads designated as Scenic Drives by the map makers, but the one which has to be at the top of the list is the Mt. Carmel Road, Hwy. 9, through the high country of Zion National Park.

Note the color of the asphalt. Utah highway engineers have done something clever. They use crushed red sandstone rock in their mix which makes the road blend with the surroundings.
