Planning I84 East to Twin Falls, then South to Salt Lake City. My question is what would be the most enjoyable route from there to Bryce, etc., I15 or old US89? I know the freeway would be faster, but I don't mind slower if there is any good reason.

Thanks for whatever info you can offer.

There are more scenic views, small towns, and and a slower pace along US89. I travel the route from Phx to SLC several times per year and I enjoy the *slower speed* along US89 as opposed to I15.

Thanks so much, that is exactly what we needed to hear. That's the way we'll go.

89 is far more scenic and peaceful a drive. If you happen to stop in Salina be sure to check out Moms Cafe, one of the oldest in the state and the food there has always been great. There are a lot of neat little towns along the way and plenty of rv parks too. At least one in every town some with two or three. Good luck and have fun.

With two drivers saying the same thing, how can I miss? I repeat, is this a great website, or what?

Much grass,

Another question - should we take the "toad?" Reading campground reviews, etc., it sounds like the major parks (Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon) all have shuttles to take you various places in the park(s). The toad is often nice to have, but don't want to drag it all the way if not going to use it much. Any thoughts?

Shuttles dont go everywhere, and should you have to camp someplace that has no shuttle service to the park to catch the shuttle and about the time you get on the road something will come up and you will wish you had taken the toad. Dont leave home without it.

Gotcha. Pretty much my thought, too. Thanks for confirmation.
