Try to get down onto I-40 then across to the Grand Canyon then work your way up into southern Utah. How you get out of Utah and back home depends upon your time schedule. I-70 going west to east has a steadier climb but a steeper downgrade vs. the other way around. I-80 is good but a little out of the way unless you are going farther up into Utah.
FWIW I-70 then north from Rifle Co thru Meeker,Craig and Baggs Wy ain't worth it.

The road goes on forever and the party never ends.
