After our time in the museum we stopped at small camp store and eatery. As one might imagine, a place so far off the beaten path, the offerings are not extensive. We order our sandwiches which was nothing elaborate but filled a void. While we ate a family enjoyed the attention the of resident chickens, of course these chickens know that people equal food and flock to people at the picnic table in the same way you would expect sea gulls at the beach.

Soon it was time to start our drive back down the mountain and the more relaxing part of the drive. This time I was on the opposite side and not looking at the steep drop offs or places where the land as fallen away and guard rails floated free of their earthy confines. I did take a video on the ride down, I wish I had extended my arm out a bit more and cleaned the windshield but it is what it is. At the end of the video you really get a feel of the layout of the mountain drive and how the road is literally perched along the top of the ridgeline, Enjoy...
