RE: WY to AZ route and stops

We just left Cody, WY and did a day trip (from Cody) up to the eastern entrance of Yellowstone. Fall colors have already arrived up there and it is beautiful. We were surprised how many tourists were up there. Many of the places to eat were already shut down so take food with you. Cody has some great restaurants (a great BBQ place). There was a light dusting of snow on the upper mountains inside Yellowstone (up by Tower Junction). If they close down the entrance roads due to snow they have flashing yellow signs on Hwy 20 going west that will alert you. When we left Cody we headed south down through Thermopolis (a neat little town). If you take that route south you will travel through the Wind River Canyon which is absolutely beautiful. Lander is a lovely town too! Thru Riverton and Rock Springs following Hwy 191 into Utah (Flaming Gorge) where again the Fall colors are spectacular (already). Wyoming is a beautiful state! Congratulations on your retirement. Relax & Enjoy. Good luck in Phoenix and welcome to the snow bird time of your life ;-) Quartzite is a kick in the pants. Cattail Cove at Lake Havasu (a state park) is great. Oh, and the Grand Canyon - northern entrance may be closed by the time you reach there - but southern entrance is typically open. It's beautiful there when it snows but no fun to drive in. Hope you find your special place in Phoenix. They have a plethora of rv parks! And if you have difficulty right IN Phoenix area search some of the outlying areas - say out by Wickenburg. Travel safe! Enjoy!! Like others have said, Wyoming can get a snow storm early. I've seen it snow in August!

Western slopes of Colorado

Curious about Colorado State routes 139 from Rangely to Grand Junction...then continuing south on State Route 141 to Dove Creek and eventually into Cortez and down thru N.M. to I-40. On my maps these roads don't show mountainous but hey it's the backside of some glorious mountains. We are a 40' Class A towing. We try to avoid going through big cities when going south (i.e. Denver and SLC) and have never taken this route. Thanks for any and all assistance!

RE: Durango, CO to Baggs, WY

Thanks guys for all the assistance! Not going to Gunnison so won't worry about construction on Hwy 50. Had heard about the nasty delays. Thanks also for the alternate route idea (145 to 62). Notice that on both of those roads there is notation on my maps of "tunnels". On 145 it looks like "Lizard Head Pass" and on 62 it looks listed as "Dallas Divide". We are 13'2". Any idea of the limitations on those tunnels? Guess I could check Colorado Dept of Transportation/Highways, they may have them listed. BarryG20 may take your suggestion about going one way, coming back the other! See more country. We've traveled some very "interesting" roads on our travels and hubby (driver) is comfortable and accomplished with roads like in the photo. He used to travel code 3 on very curvy roads with no guardrails. I as the "nagivator":) am more the white knuckle rider but enjoy the scenery so won't limit his skills. He'd much rather deal with narrow roads and drop offs than driving through SLC or Denver during rush hour or any time for that matter. Again, thanks for input. Appreciate it!!

Durango, CO to Baggs, WY

Heading north out of Durango on US 550; catch Hwy 50 at Montrose to Grand Junction, I-70 to Rifle & north on State Rt 13 through Craig to Baggs...any problems? We're 40' diesel pusher hauling. Want to avoid Denver :) Thanks!!
