I will be riding from east,east of Toronto ,destination, probably Vegas but not sure. I am planning on riding across on 70 to Colorado Springs. Pikes peak, but only if I get there early enough. Wind my way across, mostly through the southern part, hitting up million dollar highway. Then going up and across to Moab, then south down to monument valley, Bryce Canyon and so on. I thought since I was in the area I might zip over to Vegas, just to see it, then Death Valley doesn’t look that far from there. Then down and across to Santa Fe. I was even considering popping down to Juarez to hit up a dentist. Grand Canyon is not on my list. I hate crowds. That’s why if I don’t get to pp first thing, I will pass. I just bought Colorado/Utah butler maps and I am using those for assistance. No dirt roads, pavement only please. Any routes or passes I should do, also good campgrounds to stay at. No off road BLMs. I have pulled this off butler maps that may be more or less what I am considering... Lizard head pass Independence pass East portal road Gateway/unaweep Pikes peak....antero....Carbondale....hotchkiss.....saperino......montrose....550 south....Durango...Cortez....placerville....naturita....Utah.....Moab. Utah.....191....95 n....24...12s.....89s....14w....15s.....to Vegas. I read that monument valley going southbound gives you the “iconic” view. For those who have been, and locals, above is what I have written on my paper so far. I know it probably doesn’t make a lot of sense presented like that but that’s kinda my start of mapping out a route. I don’t feel pressure to “have to do” something but I have heard that Bryce is a must see. Is that the road, 12....that the scenery changes every 20 miles or something? Since I have never been to the USA SW, I would like to see adobe homes, deserts, cactus, red rocks, typical SW scenery. 70=across will be a slog but it’s what needs to be done. I will cross at Windsor and drop down 75 to 30 to 70. I’m unsure if it’s faster to not drop down so soon...any info is greatly appreciated. Oh, planning on leaving very late may or very start of June. I bought a mesh jacket that I will bring. I’m not sure what to expect weather wise considering the various elevations and hotter drier areas I will be hitting. Just trying to cover my bases.
