    Neat roadway and would of been fun for me even towing my big box Bonnie would not of liked it as I tend to go fast around corners in both the car and truck, and yes with the box in tow. With the dually you don't get pushed around unless you are really over doing it

      I don't mind the curves as long as they're level. The ones downhill with the 25 mph sign get my attention!

      I thought about taking the photos myself as I was driving. NOT! If we're back there again I'd like to explore more without the big box attached. Utah is a place where no matter which direction you look there's a fantastic view.

        Hi Jim,

        From our cross country trip in 04' to 05' we discovered that the US is very large and their seem to be a endless supply of the type of views you have posted. We also determined that staying in one place for a longer period of time was needed. It was a great trip non the less.

          I chatted with an RV park owner in Torrey, UT who told me how that very fact gets first time European vacationers in trouble. They're not used to states being the size of European countries. They don't leave enough travel time from park to park. I've also never seen so many Class C rentals, reportedly many driven by Europeans. They all had smiles, probably due to the cheap gasoline.

            Utah is a fantastic state to see.
            Jim - of all of the states we have visited in the west, Utah without a doubt is the most beautiful. After spending a week in Zion NP, I thought the ideal situation for retirement would be to live in Springdale, UT and be a shuttle driver in the park.

              i know this is an old "post'----but we just got back from 3 weeks seeing the canyons---jused this blog for CG recommendations and they were great as expected---we had not planned on driving Hway 12---but a frien told me about a great resturant in Boluder UT---so we went---if you are ever in the area (i mean within a 100+ miles) it's worth a visit---Hell's backbone Grill---excellent !! had a great dinner came back for breakfast and had the best eggs i've ever eaten (and thats a lot of eggs)

              and i agree Utah is a joy to visit

                This is a valuable thread to keep alive. I agree Utah is my favorite too. Thanks for posting the pictures. We drove Hwy 12 too it was scary and awesome! Yes it would have been more fun without hauling the trailer we had the 26FKS then. I wonder how we would do with the 33FKS? Did anyone do that route with that model?

                  The grades, tho steep, are fairly short--most of them--I think you would do ok with the 33, just slowww near the top.
