A Utah Road Trip: Prime Driving Country

monument valley utahYou could say that any state with roads is prime driving country, but none compare to the state of Utah. The state has some of the longest stretches of scenic desert highway spanning from Salt Lake City to Bryce Canyon National Park.

If you’ve never read up on Utah before, prepare to be impressed. The state has 5 National Parks, all of them in southern Utah. I-70, I-80, I-15, and I-84 are the major highways that pass through the state, but where the true scenic driving kicks in is on the smaller highways of I-89 and I-191. These two highways lead to the state of Arizona, but also allow access to Canyonlands National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon National park, and Zion National Park (part of the Grand Circle of Southwest National Parks). Many of these parks have been carved over millions of years by the Colorado River or the extreme elements, causing unique sandstone erosions.

If you think you have what it takes to endure the heat of Utah in the summer, the long stretches of barren desert, or the arid desert air, then read this page and learn how to plan your Utah Road Trip.
