Re: Barstow Ca. (ugh) back to Colorado, suggestions?
Here's a route:
I15 thru St George to UT Hwy 9
East to Hurricane UT, then SE on UT 59 which becomes AZ 389.
At Fredonia go SE on Alt 89.
Side trip south to N Rim of Grand Canyon
(or Toroweap if you have plenty of time and don't mind 60 mi of washboard road each way.
Allow at least 3 days for Toroweap.)
Continue on to Marble Canyon and south to Hwy 89 then N to Page.
Then SE on 98 thru the Navajo Nation to Hwy 160.
NE on 160 to Keyenta then N on US 163 with a side trip into Monument Valley.
Continue NE to Mexican Hat, UT.
Quick side trip to Goosenecks of the San Juan and Valley of the Gods.
Just before Bluff UT, go N up Comb Wash or Butler Wash if one of 'em is dry enough.
Then E on UT 95 to US 191 and N to Blanding, UT and Moab.
You can probably do this route in a few days, but a few weeks would be better.
Good luck and have a great time.
