I will be moving in a couple of weeks to Provo, UT, and I want to make the best of my drive out there. I've lived in Florida my whole life, but I absolutely love the mountains, so I am very excited about moving out west.
I've already decided that I am going to take the (suggested) quick route through Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, but I have a few questions after that. I've already been all through Colorado and I-70, so I think I would like to continue through the southern parts of Wyoming on I-80.
From there, however, I would like to cut south on some US Highways or State Routes off the beaten trail in to the eastern areas of Utah. Looking at a map, it looks like I can take US-191/WY-373 (eastern side of Flaming Gorge) or go a little further west to the western side of Flaming Gorge down WY-530. At that point I would continue on US-40 and eventually in to Utah Valley.
A second option would be to go even further west and take WY-150/UT-150 through Park City and eventually in to Utah Valley.
The final option would be to continue on I-80 through the western border of Wyoming, through Park City, and eventually in to Utah Valley.
I would also be open to other suggestions from people familiar with the area, because I would like to make the best of this trip. I get great mileage and can get well over 400 miles per tank, so fuel services should not be much of an issue. Unfortunately, because I am moving, I may have a few valuables in my car, so I won't be able to venture away from my car too long to do any hiking or anything. Because of that, I would like to be able to enjoy any views from my vehicle.
I think this is a great forum, and I would love to share my experience with you guys once I have made my journey. Thank you in advance for your help, and I hope I can help some others along with similar trips as I explore the West.
