That would be like trying to eat a gourmet meal in five minutes. Some things have to be savored. If I had to visit the Tetons in less than four days I would feel cheated.

Yah we love the Tetons and plan on spending 2 wks to a month there next year. Just thought that given their itinerary and schedule, they could do the National park drive in the one day, and the hike on the same day.

If people are up for hiking more and longer, then much longer in the Tetons and Rockies in general is always a good thing.

Also, perusing the online versions of the tourism brochures for the area is another good way to get more ideas and familiarity with the highlights. For Bozeman, an example that I like is : Outside Bozeman - Summer 2016 digital edition

Hope that all helps!!

Route Help Requested (Bryce Canyon to SLC, Utah)

All,

I'm making progress on my trip across the Western US and am in the route planning phase. We have a diesel Ford F-250 and a 31 ft 5th wheel. Does anyone have a recommendation for the route we should take from Bryce Canyon to Salt Lake City? I'm thinking of taking the 89 all the way up to Provo, UT and then cutting over to the 15 up to SLC.

I've looked on Google Maps and the terrain looks a bit rough at some spots. However, I've heard it's a much nicer drive then just taking the 15 all the way up to SLC. Any thoughts?

89 from Bryce to Salt Lake City is an excellent way to go and it's not bit 'rough'. You're correct, secondary roads are much more enjoyable than an interstate.


If you do change your mind, take 89 through Panguitch and take Hwy 20 over to I-15. It's also a good drive.

Coming into your party a little late - Look these two sites over - 17 summers of RV road trip travels across the USA and Canada | Lolo's Extreme Cross Country RV Trips - a family that has been doing this for years and has now relocated to your coast.

Stan Parker's album is just a great resource for ideas - using pictures of many of the places you will want to visit - Stan Parker's Photo Galleries at pbase.com -

Having done this for years we have found that the more we plan the more hectic it gets - Just get yourself into the general areas - explore - enjoy - extend and just have fun.

One trip with the Granddaughters and parents I asked the question as to what was the most fun? Throwing rocks into the stream - not the hike into the Aspen and Lakes at the Bells (Maroon Bells. CO) - so just remember that all need to enjoy the trip and everyone sees it differently.

Best of Luck as you try to get this planned,

As for the question posed - I always try to Catch Rt 12 if in the area - which would open you to just TOO much in the way of things to see (Bryce - Kodachrome - Escalante - Capital Reef - Goblins - and just soo much more ) IMHO sometimes you need to just drive through and plan on the next trip as to spending the time to enjoy later. So not wrong choice as the trip should be as good as the destination.

BOL,

I agree wholeheartedly. We set a goal of seeing all the Presidential Museums, not at one time but over several years. So each trip to a Museum took us through new territory and we explored as we went along.

We very seldom made reservations and kind of wandered around a bit. Being retired helps though.

We are from the Portland and looks like you will be going through the Columbia River Gorge area. Don't want to say there isn't alot to do around the City but the kids will love the Gorge. Rcommend either Memaloose State Park near the Dalles, or Ainesworth StatePark near Troutdale. Plenty of waterfalls dams fish latters, wind surfers at Hood River, Mt hood, Beacon Rock to climb, Crown Point, Maryhill Museum, Stone Hinge just to name a few. Think this is the 100 year celebration of the old highway also.

I think the teens will enjoy both.
Deer Lodge is about 80 miles EAST of Missoula.
