Located in Bluff Bark off Shades Crest Rd, the view is great from the Tip Top Grill. This place was a gas station for a lot of years before closing down in the 1990's. It was later turned into a hot dog stand. They took out the gas pumps, added a deck, and kept the view.
I've watched spectacular sunsets, horrible thunder storms and the odd iridium flair from up here.
