It was snowing on the day so we got very limited visibility. Some of the scenic pts are closed due to heavy snow and they cut short of the bus back down the the train station due to safety.

It was a very nice experience but be prepared to wait in line for each section of the route. If you choose to go a part of the route and come back to the same spot it can get quite a challenge. The nature is astonishing.
It was a really nice experience hoping to go back again 😊
