Travel from Phoenix north to Canada?

Anybody head north from Phoenix to Hwy 97 crossing lately? How is the road? Any recommended stops?

I'm leaving Phoenix Friday AM.

Thanks for your tips in advance!

Where is 97 ? I'm looking at my google maps app and can't seem to see it. I have the Mountain Directories and thought you might be looking for mountainous info.

The 97 I'm aware of comes out of Weed (northern California) up through central Oregon & Washington to the Canada border. I've traveled the 97 part in Oregon and it is good highway. I've taken 93 out of Las Vegas towards Reno, then 395 to Susanville then 44 & 89 to I-5 south of Weed and 97 starts off I-5 at Weed, CA.

Hi Cliff,

I would actually be heading north from Blythe, CA up to Vegas and winding my way north to connect to Hwy 97 that enters Canada at Osoyoos, BC.

Oh. That 97. Here's what the Mountain Directory has to say about one area in Oregon.

A shorter and very good road in an RV is take I-15 north out of Vegas. Turn onto 93 north, then turn left onto higway 318. When you get to Ely, Nv, you will merge back onto 93 north. This will then take you to Twin Falls Idaho at I 84.

Taken that route many times and it is a very good way to save about 150 miles.

I would take the Arizona 95 through Lake Havasu to I40 then down to Cal 95. The last time I went through Blythe to Needles it was not such a good road. Az 95 is better road and more scenic although much more traffic. Have a good trip.

Is 318 to Ely, Nv better than just staying on 93 to Ely? I haven't tried 318 yet.

Jerry, I believe it is. I have taken it a number of times. It is about 42 miles shorter and eliminates the pass. It is a nice road but a couple of small towns. Watch your speed through them.

I will try it in November when we drive from N Idaho to Congress, Az area. Thanks. I enjoy the solitude of the drive on 93 in Nevada.
Thanks.

318 is a good road, we just went that way a month ago. It also saves a couple miles.
