Hello! My girlfriend and I are planning a 2 week road trip from Akron, Ohio out to Montrose Colorado from the end of June to July. We have a few days to play with and definitely want to see a lot of Utah and Colorado and maybe some of Northern Arizona. We would like to see some of the generic touristy attractions along the way but are more interested in the road(s) less traveled. We also would love some info on festivals, flea markets and the like along the way. We want to see as much beautiful country as possible as well as quirky little towns. All suggestions are welcome!
Also, any suggestions on passing the time while crossing the midwest? (ha?)
