A closeup view of the rest area location, seen from on top of one of the big cuts about a mile away. The ramps leading into the rest area can be seen getting started, and so can the aggregate on top of the roadway further south. The thin white line in the cut in the background is one of the rock fence/barrier combinations to keep rocks off the roadway. The cut behind the rest area will be reforested with trees this fall to help it blend it into the surrounding terrain. Photo taken in June 2001.
