Made it to Williams Az. This will be our base camp for exploring the Grand Canyon and the Flagstaff area. Arrived during a minor snow storm!

We love Williams. It's our weekend get away spot in the summer. Where you staying there?

Once you get to Kanab, UT/Fredonia, AZ area using 89 or 89A, if you want to get to Zion without using the much-mentioned tunnels on Hwy 9 east of Zion, then an easy way to get to Zion/Springdale, Utah area is from Fredonia, take AZ389 which becomes UT59 to Hwy 9 at Hurricane, UT. Then take Hwy 9 east to Zion. This is a easy drive.

From Zion to Bryce you can either reverse the above route and take 89 north to Hwy 12 and Bryce. Or you can take Hwy 9 west to I-15. Take I-15 north to Hwy 20 east to 89 south through Panguitch, UT and on to Hwy 12 east to Bryce. This is also a easy route for RVers. Do not take Hwy 14 from I-15 to 89. Hwy 14 is very steep. Instead, take Hwy 20 to 89 from I-15.

You don't have to go near Las Vegas.

Another question reference your answer. If we stay on the east side of Zion, (assuming we can find a place) can we just drive north on 89 and visit Bryce? After that, then find a good hwy to get to I-15 to head north?

Another question: It looks like I will be staying at Colter Bay in the Grand Tetons and then heading for West Yellowstone (fishing Bridge is booked solid until ...like next year). After leaving West Yellowstone I was wondering how Hwy 191 headed north is as far as grades and mountains?

Thanks again.

From what I've heard of "The Dragon's Tail" in Tennessee, that's a "white knuckle" road, which makes it a classic for sports cars and motorcycles.

These roads are much tamer.
my smart car loved those turns at Tail Of Dragon, left the rv at camp ground
