    I'm dropping a truck Sunday in Dolores, CO and then I have a van I'm taking to SLC. I've been to Cortez, CO before so I know the roads via NM isn't bad but I've never run from SW CO into SLC. Is 191 to 6 into SLC a ok route? I assume someone here has been through there (191 goes through MOAB / Spanish Valley)

    Yeah, normally when I see Utah it's via 80 into SLC then up to Idaho or something so it will be nice to see it from a different direction but wasn't sure if I should trust the roads lol

    Done that route many times from Laredo to Portland.

    Its a pretty drive. Over all pretty good running the whole way, hill here or there. Grade here or there, but an unforgettable route. It never slowed me down all that much even heavy.

    It is a good route. Just pay attention going through Moab because it is so beautiful you will have a hard time keeping your eye on the road. Moab, Utah area in my humble opinion is the most beautiful place on the country I have yet seen. Enjoy the drive!
     
    mitrucker, Dave_in_AZ, Team818 and 2 others Thank this.

    That is my preferred route in winter when going from SLC to Dallas. I then follow 491 to 40 to 287.

    It is much preferable to the frozen, wind-swept hell of i80 to i25 of Wyoming in the winter.

    Good road. Will have a lot of camping traffic.
    Watch your speeds in the few little towns you come upon.
    Make sure you have fuel.
     
    Team818, FerrissWheel and crocky Thank this.
