So excited to share my BBC Travel feature!
Around 3,000ft, we saw a turnout and pulled over. Bathed in sunlight, the plunging mountains appeared almost blue, their jagged outlines carved into a clear, perfect sky. “This gives you a sense of vastness, doesn’t it?” my husband said. “You feel like you’re on top of the world.” The ridge was like a sentinel in this otherworldly landscape. I felt a sense of limitlessness as I gazed down at the twisting road we’d taken up here, where the peaks seemed to meet the heavens.
