Northerly view approaching the US-89 intersection just south of Downtown Provo.  Surprisingly, US-89 doesn't follow Provo's main street.

Northerly view approaching Center Street in Downtown Provo.  While I have admittedly little experience in Utah, aside from spending a couple of days in the state, many Utah communities seem to quite pleasant and lively central business districts.

View approaching the UT-52 junction.  The two left lanes turn left at this intersection, while the right continues through the intersection unimpeded by the traffic signal that alternates flow between the left turn movement and southbound traffic.

This view looks southerly approaching the signalized intersection with UT-52.  A flyover ramp links UT-52 East to US-189 North, so the pictured traffic light only alternates flow between southbound US-189, and the dual left turn from northbound US-189 and UT-52 West.

Overhead signage approaching the traffic signal at the UT-52 intersection.  While US-189 continues as a four-lane highway south of the UT-52 intersection, the right hand lane from the Provo Canyon Highway departs US-189 for UT-52 at this intersection.

This view looks northerly at the southern access road to Bridal Vale Falls.  Note the sign on the right advising northbound traffic not to stop during the wintertime due to the risk of avalanches.

Northerly view a short distance beyond the access road to Bridal Vale Falls.  The current alignment of US-189 had to built on a high embankment over the access road to Bridal Vale Falls within the steeply sided valley.

Two views looking northerly at the twin tunnels that are situated halfway up the Provo Canyon Highway.  While most of US-189 was notched out of the steep valley walls of the Provo River Valley, the valley was too narrow at this location for the highway to be carved into the valley walls.

This view looks northerly at the UT-92 intersection.  UT-92 is an east-west highway that heads up the mountain range adjacent to various ski resorts before descending back into the valley and terminating at I-15.

Two views looking northerly about 200 yards north of the UT-92 intersection.  For a short distance through this part of the Provo River Canyon, the separate carriageways of US-189 have been built on different elevations of the hillside.

The northbound and southbound carriageways of US-189 merge after about a mile of multi-level highway.  I am not certain that the photographs adequately capture how much fun the Provo Canyon Highway was to drive.  The highway is akin to a roller coaster, with undulating vertical geometry and tight turns.  I drove the Provo Canyon Highway twice northbound and once southbound when I visited the area in May, 2014.
