Skyline Drive

Has anyone ever driven Skyline Drive in Canon City Colorado? We did it one year and it was neat. I wanted to do it a second time but my wife said it scared her and she would wait for me at the entrance.

I found a video on Youtube which shows the drive. Click here to see if it works

While there a trip to Bishops Castle is worthwhile.

The MGB-GT has been across it. The DW enjoyed the ride! She also liked the trip across the Million Dollar Highway in the DP with Toad.

I wouldn't even hike that road.

I did notice he pulled over several times, and no one passed him, so I assume it was to change pants??
