    Highway 12 a little east of Brice, about 2 miles. It's @ :47 seconds into this video.

    Click on the word "this" in my post above, it should open the video.

    To me it looks like the pull off east of of Brice, on hwy 12 east a couple miles from the junction where you turn to enter the park.

    it's a short way onto 12, close to the Red Canyon visitor center at the Golden Wall trailhead

    it's not as far as Ruby's Inn - once you get east of there you're headed downhill pretty quick - I take that road a lot :nod
