Going West in May, traveling in the above states. Any thing I need to know about construction, low bridges, places to stay away from, or other info that might be helpful. Places I need to visit that may not have placed into the route I have planned.

Take the bypass AROUND Wickenburg, AZ. Low railroad overpass they don't tell you about till you get there. OK to go under in towed.

In New Mexico, Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands are worth a visit. Also Sante Fe and Taos.

Utah has a lot to see between Arches, Canyonlands, Dead Horse Point, Zions and Bryce. Plan for a few extra days to see it all.

Bill Davis,

We plan on hitting Wickenburg, AZ the middle of May. Where is this low railroad overpass? We'll be coming in on US 60 from the south. When we leave we're planning on taking US 93 north, will we hit (no pun intended ) the overpass on either road?

If you lok at a map of Wickenburg, you will see the railroad tracks through town. I believe the train trestle is what you want to avoid. If you leave Hwy 60 and turn right onto Hwy 89/93, you will avoid the trestle. We were continuing West on 60, so we took 89/93 then back to 60 on Vulture Mine Rd. Check this out on a map.
If you want to stay in Wickenburg, Horsepitality is a unique RV park, where you can board your horse. A visit to the defuncy Vulture Mine is interesting. If you go past the Great Wall of Wickenburg, honk. My brother in law lives there. Also, some insider information. Speed traps abound. Have fun.

Take a drive on Utah hiway 12 from Torrey to Bryce Canyon, or vice versa. It should be do-able in your coach.

Don't miss Bryce Canyon. It's spectacular.

The drive over The Hog Back is really neat. No, it's not a "white knucle" drive - the scenery is terriffic.
