what got me mad was that there was no way to get a stamp for my National Park Passport at the east side, I had to go all the way around and there wasn't time.
nf25 is the north/south road on the east side... nf99 is the way into the observation point.
this is on 25...
and this was the road surface (turnout, actually) from where the shot was taken. you can see the grade subsiding in the roadway though. these roads were rough, perfect for the GS.
