This iconic viewpoint willl take you several hours to get there from just about anywhere...its probably easier to find the general location of the mile marker by looking for Medicine Hat, Utah in Google Maps...take plenty of water as well, as there are no structures...More

While there, I can also support that locals do not wait for tourists. The best way to get aw some shots is to 1) get your camera set up and 2) get someone to spot for you. It’s worth having time and patience it’s beautiful
