There are other rides in America that might reach this level of awe-inspiring scenery— but none of them is a loop around the edge of a surreally blue volcanic lake nearly 2000 feet deep. So, not to state the obvious, but this is one of the prettiest rides you’ll ever experience. That said, it’s also a bit of a brutal challenge. As the elevation profile reveals, there are really no ?at spots (OK, maybe a short stretch around mile 13, but you get my point).
