You're right as I was kidding, but you will go over two mountain passes (Continental Divide and Vail Pass). They are both as easy as can be since they are on the interstate.

Your most interesting drive on I-70 will be Glenwood Canyon. It is about 13 miles along and is full of scenic natural features. Speeds drop through the canyon from 75 mph to 45 mph. This was the last section of I-70 to be built in the U.S. and you'll understand why when you drive it. A true engineering and environmental marvel.

I can't help you with the route from Page to Bryce, but the road from Cameron to the south rim of the Grand Canyon is very easy. As I remember, there is only one hairpin turn on the entire 25 mile length of Hwy. 64 to the south rim and it's located at the Desert View overlook parking lot. Be sure to stop here and visit the watchtower.
