The drive was full of s-curves and switchbacks over and down mountains. It was clear that the storm had gone through the area as we saw many downed trees and debris along the roadside.
There were many times I was reminded of a train ride through the Swiss Alps a couple years ago. We drove along the river's edge and we were level with the water. I could see why there were numerous signs warning of the possibility of water over the road.
We were disappointed to learn that the springs were closed due to flooding. We opted to stay and do the cave tour, which was pretty amazing!
