When driving on the National Forest roads it pays to check out the points of interest along the way, especially when there are no future plans for a return visit. Taking the time to have a look at a unique campground deep in the woods will provide something to dream about, while the lesser known scenic overlooks provide views of panoramic landscapes that relatively few mainstream tourists will ever see. Sometimes the overlooks feature a landscape where a bit of pioneer history occurred or where an extreme wildfire was battled, so something can be learned along the way. Other scenic overlooks live up to their name and they can make a viewer wonder why the dramatic spot is not more famous. The Ripple Creek Overlook is one such place that offers panoramic alpine views of the Rocky Mountains, so this roadside attraction is well worth taking the time to check out. The Ripple Creek Overlook is located along County Road 8 in the White River National Forest, so be sure to keep this majestic spot in mind when passing through!

*This website will be going through renovations soon. Separate destination articles will be combined after the videos replace the outdated photo gallery system. As many readers know, most of the writing was done on the fly while camping, so many articles read like a rough draft. The articles will be cleaned up and edited. Many of the old photos were straight out of the camera due camping limitations as well, so you will finally see full living color images, just like in the new videos. Another goal is to make navigating the index pages easier and condensing the articles will help. This website will continue into the future and your patience is greatly appreciated!
