Also are there any fuel stops along this route?
This is the route we took on one of our trips out west. The roads are fine and as the other poster said there are plenty of gas stations. My 99 V10 did great on this route.

There is fuel at the casino. Stop in Dove Creek at the Mill and get some Anasazi Beans.


"This would also check off Colorado off of our map list."
You might want to take another trip, there is so MUCH more to see in CO.

Sounds like a great trip! It reminds me of a trip I took back in the 1980s. I had a 1980 Toyota Pick-up with a camper shell and a carpet kit inside.

I left from Los Angeles via I-10 to Flagstaff, Arizona. There, I stayed at the Flagstaff KOA one night. The next day, I drove to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and roamed around there for a few hours in the early morning.

From there I headed to Durango, Colorado to ride the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. I stayed at a motel in Durango. After that, I headed to Mesa Verde National Park. I stayed at the Cortez, AZ KOA.

After Durango and Mesa Verde, I headed north and cut west into Utah to go to Zion National Park. I stayed at a motel in Springdale.

From there, back home to L.A.
