The best natural landmarks define historic travel across the American landscape. On your next road trip through the U.S., make it a point to visit these six postcard-worthy sites. The experience you’ll have isn’t available anywhere else in the world.
6. Colorado Continental Divide
Independence Pass is among the most popular “Great Divide” stops, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation. At more than 12,000 feet above sea level, however, you can’t make the trip on your feet alone. Do yourself a favor and reserve a vehicle suited for the altitude at Fox Rent a Car before you go. That way you won’t need to worry about your own sea-level vehicle stalling out in the mountains.
Sage Advice: Independence Pass closes for the season around the first week of November. You can’t visit again until the Spring thaw.
