The cool mountain air and the rocky mountain views were the reward after the steep and windy road to get there. This location is NOT a place to take campers, RVs, or any other large vehicles over 22 feet in length. The road becomes single lane in many places with steep drop offs and there wasn't a guardrail on the entire road. I am not trying to spook anyone from seeing this place, just those with large rigs for their safety.
I would imagine that stargazing at this elevation, without light any pollution, would be a breathtaking event to say the least. Maybe, in the future, we can stay here over a weekend and enjoy the cafes, hikes, and stars. Until then, we pass on this good info so that others can enjoy this wonderful place, that time forgot.
