    From a trip to the area a couple of years ago. I find this road the way it curves around in a tight hairpin bind from this vantage quite an interesting foreground to the majesty of Mt Shuksan.

    C&C Welcome.

    Neat shot. I like this view of Shuksan since I mostly just see the usual view over the ponds up above this spot.

    I have only been up there once and would like to do it again.

    Very nice indeed. Sometimes I feel like a road can get in the way of a shot, but in this case I agree the road really adds to what is already a great subject, well captured, in very nice light.

    I like the way you post processed it, makes the road look a lot nicer.

    Nice shot, all it needs is a yellow ferrari cutting the hairpin! By the way there isn’t an e at the end of Artist when referring to this location.

    That hairpin made me look four times, and it makes me wonder what the rest of the road is like :)

    Thanks Ben.
    The reflection in the lake is overdone but still
    Pretty nice. Btw the is further up from the lake.

    Thanks Mike.

    Thanks Amy

    Thanks Darcy

    Thanks Jim. Noted the spelling. Am likely confusing with a similarly named area is death. Valley.

    It’s pretty curvy all the way to the top.

    The road up to the top is full of crazy curves. Fun driving a car that handles well.
