189 around or 15 through SLC

Heading from provo to Bear Lake UT/ID:

I15 and 189 / 80 routes are about the same distance. All things equal I avoid cities. Is 189 ok for me and my fiver? Wont save time but may enjoy it more.,.

I can safely say that hauling 19,000 pounds of RV and a toad... Beltways are nearly always a better choice... Can't say I've been out your way (YET!) but, my experience has been, it is always better to avoid a city if you can...

We take 89 from I15. The drop into Bear Lake is pretty steep, I go down in 2nd gear.

We stay at the KOA.

If you go through Salt Lake on Sunday morning you'll think the freeway is

2000 LEXUS RX300 FWD 22MPG 4020 LBS

Yes, 189 is a beautiful drive and popular with RVers. It's only about 50 mi. Just about all scenic roads are now on YouTube.
