Before we went to Utah in 2013 we had heard about the hog back and how perilous it was. We drove over it going from Bryce to Torrey and enjoyed it immensely, beautiful scenery and not frightening at all. Glad that we could see it one of the highlites of the trip.


The time we took 12 from Bryce it was my wifes turn to drive. I ask her if she wanted me to drive but she said she was ok so on to Torrey we went. I got to do the sight seeing this time

Just to give you some idea of what the views were like, this was taken (not by me!) at Larb Hollow Overlook, south of Torrey. The red rock is the Waterpocket Fold (Capitol Reef), and the snowy mountains are the Henry Mountains to the east. When we were there three weeks ago, it looked just like this photo:
