      There are numerous dramatic overlooks and viewing points dotted along the 123-mile course of beautiful Highway 191 but none surpasses Blue Vista for sheer scale and majesty. Driving south-to-north, you’ll approach it via the dramatic switchbacks that allow the Coronado Trail to climb the Mogollon Rim before topping out here at 9,172 feet. The views are immense - on the horizon are the Pinaleno Mountains, 70 miles away - and the colors change throughout the day.
      If you go:
      This is also a good spot for natural breaks: there are restrooms, interpretive panels, a short nature trail and basic picnic facilities.
