Personally 97 to KFalls and cut over to Alturus on 39/139. As an alternative take the cutoff about 20 miles south of the 58/97junction to 31 at Silver Lake. Both work well and cut off hundreds of miles from the trip.

I would take the route US395 and OR140 to US95 to I80. Only 10 minutes longer then the other routes but is sparsely populated high desert most of the way. Interesting trip with plenty of great places to stop. Not much to worry about weather wise that early in the fall. Leaving Eugene will probably be wet but after getting on the east side of the mountains it'll be smooth sailing through lightly traveled areas.

I'm jealous! Monument valley is spiritual. The view from Gouldings campground is amazing too! Have a fantastic trip!

FWIW - we had snow on the mountains here in the Bend, Or area last two nights. I would play close attention to the weather and temps if planning on crossing the Cascades that late in Oct. I see nothing wrong with the route you planned, as I have driven the Hwy 20 to Boise route towing a JKS. I would suggest that gas up in Bend area as there is no service between Bend and Burns, with plenty of service one you cross over into Idaho off the interstate. The route 450DONN suggest would also work as this gives options.

Suggestions for any stops?

Thanks for the replies, I think we will stick with the route we have planned as it seems to keep us out of the most trouble. The other routes are great suggestions, and I am sure they are quite beautiful.

Are there any stops you suggest along our route?

The Utah parks are always a good choice to stop.

As far as October weather in those two areas goes, it is tough predicting things, especially the future...
