It is a beautiful drive up the mountain. The traffic was heavy with cars, motorcycles and hikers. My mom was pretty much exhausted by the time we made it to the top, but she persevered down the handsome paths to one of the overlooks. A spectacular view, but the bushes were not in bloom. It was still a treat to see what a nice job has been done to allow visitors access to this wonder.
