This view from high above the Virgin River Gorge, speaks of its remoteness and beauty. This is the gorge where the most expensive rural freeway in cost pre mile was built in 1962. The gorge section is 16 miles long with cliffs over 500 feet towering above the roadway. This Freeway has shortened the trip for most northern travellers who want to get to Las Vegas and Los Angeles and San Diego. At this elevation we can the barrel cacti, which often grow to over 4 feet high along the rim of the canyon. The rich colors of the rock strata adds to the wild beauty of the area.
