Anyone have any places within five miles of the road with particularly good views to the west south of I-70?
I think there is no really good place for a sunset on and along this road due to the fact thas to the west rises the what I call "Inner Reef" and a little bit farther to the west are the Fishlake Mountains both blocking the view onto the setting sun early.Five miles from the road that goes from the interstate to Tomisch Butte. We'd camp overnight.
If you are looking for an easy spot to stop on the South side of I-70 near Highway 10. Go about a mile or two west of Highway 10 on I-70 east. If you start dropping way down into a minnie "canyon" you have gone too far. When the you get close to the low rock outcrops, pull off the road and park (pull far off as 18 wheelers fly through). Start making your way east on foot moving up the natural switch backs of the outcrop. After a while you will be way up there with a great view of the San Rafael Swell to the north. There are alot of natural ledges from rock beds to sit and watch the sunset. I spent a lot of time of there getting regional photos for Geology research in the area. The views to the west and really nice and its right off the interstate.Anyone have any places within five miles of the road with particularly good views to the west south of I-70?
