I'm a long time lurker to the site, but decided to post for the first time.
The wife and I are planning to go from Salt Lake City to Denver through the Southern part of Utah and Colorado. I've seen similar discussions, but they all seem to discuss going straight East or in a more north direction.
We've already been to the Grand Canyon, so we were thinking about spending a night#1 in SLC, then heading south to Bryce Canyon (is Zion worth it before this?), then east to Monument Valley up to Canyonlands and Arches.
After Arches, I'm just not sure what else to see/do on the way up to Denver/Rocky Mountain NP.
Also are the Salt Flats west of SLC worth driving out to see?
We're both young and although not real big hikers, we could handle a mile or two of hikes if it were REALLY WORTH IT! :-)
Any route suggestions would be really helpful.
