RE: Thru Amarillo - south to north

You are going to stop at The Big Texan for dinner aren't you? No...been there, done that. IMHO, it's way overrated and overpriced. But a neat stop for someone to experience. Thanks, Mark

RE: Thru Amarillo - south to north

When we travel "north" we are usually going up through Dalhart. If that is the case for you I recommend traveling west on IH-40 and then take highway 385 north. It's been many years since we actually drove through Amarillo We're coming from the south of Amarillo on IH27 385 goes to Dalhart, but we're going to Dumas. Up hwy 287/87. I was trying to find out if it's better to go around the loop or thru town. Thanks, Mark

Thru Amarillo - south to north

Will be going through Amarillo next week, from Lubbock going north. Looking for advice regarding traffic, construction, etc. Is it best to go around on 335, or just go thru town? If thru town is best, should I use Fillmore (87) or Buchanan (287)? I know they join together just north of downtown heading north, but is one better than the other to get thru downtown? Thanks for your help. Mark

RE: Big 5 National Parks in Utah

Planning a trip next spring to visit the National Parks in Utah for the first time. Will be pulling a 26' travel trailer with a diesel pickup. Will be starting at Arches and ending at Zion. Would like to know routes that would be relatively easy for pulling a travel trailer and proceeding from Arches to Capitol Reef to Bryce to Zion. Main concern would be tough switchbacks to maneuver a trailer. I am aware of State Highway 12 as a scenic route that is doable pulling a trailer. Not sure of other routes over the landscape other than travelling on Interstate 70. Also, any recommendations as to private campgrounds would be appreciated. Thanks! We did that last summer (but west to east coming from Grand Canyon). Bryce to Zion - I would take 12 to 89, to 20, to I-15, down to 17, then 9 to Zion. It's just not worth it trying to get thru the tunnel with a trailer. I went thru with just my dually pickup (def need to drive thru), and going in on the west side the ranger said "have a nice day", but coming back in from the east, they measured and made me buy a permit. As stated, there are no real problems with any of the highways in this area. The Hogback on hwy 12 between Capitol Reef & Bryce could be an issue for a first-time mountain driver, but just take it easy and use the pull-outs and it's a piece of cake. And awesome!! We only stayed at one private CG (we prefer public parks) in Escalante HERE and it was pretty nice. BTW - While at Bryce, you HAVE to eat here!! BEST FOOD & PIE AROUND!! Mark
