This was a very nice drive and you can stop to check out some of the vista -- just be careful pulling in and out.

Driving the SR 179 Byway is a great way to get a nice scenic overview of the beautiful Red Rock countryside - as it’s truly spectacular country. Coming up from Phoenix brings you this way. Well worth the drive.
