Drove this from Cedar City to the Cedar Breaks junction. Loved the scenic view of Zions National Park in the distance to the south.

This drive is not to be missed while travelling in this area to see the National Parks. The hwy was trimmed in snow and there was snow in the mountains and in the forest at least 3' deep. It did not hamper the drive. The roads were clear but there was the fear of black ice since the elevation climbed on this route through the mountains. I passed a pond/lake Duck Pond and stopped to take pictures. Just as I was admiring the view a large bald eagle quietly swooped several times around the lake before he landed in a nearby pine tree. It was an amazing sight to see. Well worth it!!
