    Default Put the gps down.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    As you look around the forums you will notice a common theme, there is no single 'best' just lots of great options. It's going to take at least 3.5 days to make the journey in a comfortable and safe fashion and how many days you have to spare beyond that will determine what you might do. You can't get a lot more scenic than taking I70 west of Denver into Utah with a variety of attractions to consider. The first thing I would recommend you do is forget about your GPS for now and open up a good paper map and do a little research to find things that appeal to you and create a route around that and the time available. Once you have a few dots on the map we can help fill in the blanks and 'fine tune' your trip to your tastes. A GPS can be useful as an aid on a road trip, but should never be relied on to plan your actual route or guide you blindly. Plot out your routes and go where you want to go and not where a computer program sends you.

    Enjoy the planning !
