Bob,

I drive all the way to Boulder and couldn't find ya! LOL. That is the most amazing 75 miles I have ever seen! I have to leave here tomorrow or I would go back and explore some more. This is definently in my plan to do next fall on my way south.

This is Utah Highway 12 from the Bryce Canyon exit (mile marker 13) to The city of Boulder, UT. It's called the all American Hwy and passes thru or near several state and national parks and monuments and thru a national forest and BLM land. I saw many places along the way that would be ideal boondocking sites.

If just taking the scenic drive I suggest you travel with the sun to your
back ...west in the am, east in pm to get the best light on the unbelieveable rock formations. Just about the time you get bored with the terrain, the bottom will fall out of the road and you descend down the side of a mountain. You may need to blindfold or medicate anyone afraid of heights, but for the rest of us the views are SPECTACULAR!

Southern Utah is a scenic treasure for sure!

Is this scenic drive only for toads? or can it be done on the RV?
We will be stopping at Bryce Canyon on our way to Yellowstone and this sounds like a nice drive. We are in a 32' Class A gasser, no toad.
Sounds kind of scary for my, but DH and kids would love it. Just want to make sure we can drive this in our rig before I tell them about it.

Thank you!

Also, thanks for the boondocking sites. We will be using one of them.

It's a decent 2 lane hiway with plenty of hills and curves. You can do it in your RV, but the driver needs to concentrate on driving and is likely to miss out on some of the sights. It will still be worth it. I look forward to going back.

Enjoy!
