Compared to the Beartooth, UT 12 is a walk in the park. The Beartooth is TOUGH. Hwy 12 is easy and beautiful.

With all those traveling RTE 12 I guess I thought someone would have experienced something special with a local flare.

We've traveled this route a number of times and make sure you stop a few times to enjoy the view. If you're interested in hiking take a look at the trail from Calf Creek Recreation area to Lower Calf Creek Falls. It's about 6.5 miles round trip but fairly level. Beautiful 126' waterfall in the middle of the desert. Try to catch it near noon for the best photos. Spend a day at Capital Reef NP, it's many times overlooked.

Northeast of Capital Reef is an interesting state Park ... Goblin Valley ... unique... lots of hoodoos.

We left our motorhome at the entrance on UT 24 and drove the toad through the park

We stayed in Torrey and traveled to Glendale where we camped for visits to Bryce and Zion. Escalante would probably be your best bet.

Campground along Hwy 12 - from west to east:

Red Canyon Dixie Nat'l Forest Campground - a jewel
Bryce has 2 campgrounds
Kodachrome Basin State Park
Escalante Petrified Forest State Park
Singletree - Dixie Nat'l Forest campground just before Hwy 24

There are numerous private campground enroute. Escalante is the best area for restaurants and fuel. Have fun!

That picture of the tunnel near Bryce reminds me of the time we were talking to a ranger in Bryce, about all the dumb things people do. She said one morning, coming to work, she came upon a guy "lying on his back, in the middle of the road, in the tunnel, taking pictures of the roof."..
