RE: Is Top of the World Hwy paved

It is paved from end to end. I remember there being a small rock wall on the low side that may stop a majority of vehicles from accessing unpaved ground. When did that happen?????

RE: rt 14 east of cedar city

We always use hwy 20. Less curves and steep grades than 14. However, still requires low gear.

RE: Sacramento to Zion/Bryce Which Way To Get There

Stay with US-50 across Nevada and Utah to Salina UT. Pick up US-89 and travel south to UT 12 for Bryce and UT-9 for Zion. It will be very hot in Zion during June. Therefore, stay at higher altitude in a campground east of Zion and day trip into the park.

RE: Hwy 550 Bloomfield to Bernalillo, NM

Fairly straight and flat 4 lane. Have not driven this route for several years, so cannot comment on current road condition. New Mexico roads are usually well maintained. I would not hesitate hauling our 5th wheel over it. 550 north of Bloomfield is another question.

RE: Black Rock Road @ I 15 in AZ.

Johnna, I believe I saw what you are talking about. Is that the road that ends out by the airport? The BLM road you are talking about is a little west of the end of the road? Is that public land south of there? No it's about half way between I15 and the Airport. On the north side of the Southern Parkway it's called S River Rd. or Az Strip Rd. On the south side it's BLM 1069 which runs south to join up with county road 5 all the way to Mt. Trumbull School House. Do not attempt to take your MH on 5 east of the School House. Use only 4 wheel drive vehicles on this stretch. Very narrow and steep.

RE: Black Rock Road @ I 15 in AZ.

Black Rock Road runs south for about 3 miles to a gypsum mine. I notice rvs of all kinds dry docking along here. At the mine the road becomes BLM 1009. Although passable, 1009 is not suitable for large rvs. More suitable would be to go to exit 2 (UT7 - Southern Parkway) and travel east for about 3.5 miles to BLM 1069 south. 1069 is a dusty gravel washboard road which is usually in fair condition.

RE: Fifth wheel front cap protection

Use the same precautions as you use in the lower 48 to avoid vehicle damage. Nothing else is needed.

RE: Grand Canyon North Rim, Zion, Bryce Canyon

Zion will be very hot in August, so stay near Mt. Carmel Junction (Bauers Canyon Ranch RV Park 90 E Center St Glendale, UT 84729) and day trip to Zion. Allow more days at Bryce than the North Rim.

RE: Cortez to Grand Junction, Colorado

145 is less stressful than 550.

RE: Arches and other Utah Nat Parks: a photo tip

Another thing it has taken a long time to learn is to check the dial on top of our camera that changes settings. Where it is on the camera makes it very easy to be turned/changed when taking the camera in and out of its case or a pocket. Checking your camera's settings on a regular basis is an essential habit to form. The one setting I often forget to reset is exposure compensation after adjusting for indoor shooting. As your photos seem to be under exposed, this may have been part of your exposure problem. I live in southwest Utah and have taken many photos without exposure problems with my Nikon D5000 when the settings are correct for the lighting at the time of shooting.

RE: Route US 191 in Utah and WY

I don't know about the Forrest Gump scene, but yes, 163 runs through Monument Valley and Mexican Hat.

RE: Route US 191 in Utah and WY

Assuming, you are thinking of going north on 191 from I-40, I make the following comment: My preferred route from the Grand Canyon would be to go north on 89 to 160 to 163 to join up with 191 near Bluff, UT. We travel this route every other year or so and find it to be very scenic and stress free.

RE: Zion & Bryce Canyon

To avoid Zion tunnel, take UT-59/AZ389 to Fredonia. Then US-89 north to Bauers Canyon Ranch RV Park 90 E Center St, Glendale, UT 84729 http://www.bauersrv.com/

RE: Highway 59 out of Hurricane, Utah

There was a landslide on US89 south of Page. The detour is either US89A via Jacob Lake or Indian route 20 east of Page. As it will take some time for the landslide to be repaired, Indian Route 20 has just been paved as a long term detour.
