Hidden Gem Has a Whole New Meaning with This Place
Special thanks to Utah Department of Transportation for their cooperation on this article
You see a sign that says “view area” after driving all day. You’re tired, and maybe you think “I’ll pass…still gotta long way to go.” We’ll admit that even we do that sometimes, but those viewing areas tucked away on the side of the road–or the side roads–can turn out to be the best free views you can find on your all-American road trip.
We’ll always be grateful for deciding to stop at Harley Dome View Area in Eastern Utah that one evening.
Located just 3.5 miles west of the Utah-Colorado border along I-70 (see map), Harley dome gives you an up-close view of the West’s jagged yet amazing landscape. Look carefully and you can watch hawks fly around. Then take the winding path up to the main attraction: a panoramic view of the Wild West. Words cannot describe this place, but pictures can.
Don’t miss this opportunity; Utah is a beautiful state. The evidence begins the moment you arrive.
