  1. Default Wash. D.C. to Oregon... through Utah?

    Hi Folks:

    I came from Oregon to D.C. at the beginning of Summer. Went a low way, through Jackson, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Big Horn, Mount Rushmore, Badlands, etc.

    Now I'm planning my return, and would like to go through Utah, but don't know what would be the best route. Anybody with some experience care to provide some wisdom?

    Default What's your pleasure, and how much time are you interested in spending "wandering"?

    Hello Scampi,

    The title line pretty much sums it up. Utah is a huge state with a wide variety of landforms and cities to visit: dry salt lake deserts, barren mountain ranges, forested mountain ranges, forested canyon country, desert canyon country, huge desert reserviors. You probably get the point here.

    I've got some ideas for you if I can get a bit more input from you.

    If you want to see Canyonlands or Arches, take I-81 to I-40 and run until Albuquerque and take US 550 northwest towards Four Corners, and then up US191. Nice drive. Get on I-70 and can either run northwest on US 6 to Provo, or if you want a scenic route, take I-70 west until you get to US89 and then head north.

    To get into Oregon, take I-80 west to Winnemucca, US95 north to Nevada 140, and through barron lands until Lakeview, Oregon. Very nice drive I took in 2007.
