Picnic under a stand of old-growth ponderosa pine. You'll find all the conveniences: picnic tables, drinking water and modern restrooms. The mixed forest which borders the highway (through an area the locals call Drews Gap), is especially colorful in the fall thanks to stands of quaking aspen.
Keep a watchful eye out for abundant wildlife -- mule deer, coyote and cougar drop by every once in a while.
