The striation in rock is beautiful. It hard to imagine how this pass was carved through the mountain. Beautiful view of mountains, trees. This is a must stop great vista.

We stopped to take in the view. It is a unique view of the mountain formation. There is a small informational museum. We stopped on the westbound side of I-68.

I think I have previously rated this, but it really is an interesting hill slice, and the small museum informative. You have to walk across the pedestrian bridge if east bound, but that makes the leg-stretch better. Nice stop.

Stopped here as we were heading east. What a surprise! Interesting rock formations have been exposed for the highway to pass. Information is usually available, but they were refurbishing the facility when we went through. The main stop is on the westbound side, but a...More

Stopped here for a much needed stretch and restroom break on our way home from the Beach. Very clean facilities with a few vending machines if you need a snack. Very crowded.

Leaving the metro areas makes me long for the fields and mountains. This is one magnificent view, looking either way, but the view west sets my heart free!
