The Hogsback on Highway 12

The Hogsback is a portion of Highway 12 that travels over the narrow spine of a mesa with canyons on either side created by Boulder Creek and the other side is Calf Creek.  Many years ago the road was one lane and traffic could only cross in one direction, but it has been widened to standard highway width and provides some of the most stunning views to be had on Highway 12.  There are numerous turn-offs where pictures and video can be taken, but photos and video will never do the Hogsback justice, you have to stand there on it and take in its breath taking views to truly appreciate its majesty.

It’s a portion of road you’ll never forget!

You can see the Hogsback at about 3:20 of this video.  It doesn’t capture the views, though, which are amazing.
