North and South Routes to Grand Junction from California
Planning on road tripping to visit family in Grand Junction for the holidays. Our home is in Southern California and have made this drive I-15 to I-70 during the summer without issues. However we will be making this same trip during the winter months and are considering taking I-40 to Flagstaff then up Hwy 89 to Hwy 160 to Hwy191 to I-70 into Grand Junction.
Has anyone done this route? Pros Cons..... how's the grade and are the roads well kept? We know how the grade is going up through Fishlake National Forest and on the return up to the vista at Capitol Reef....but are they any worse or better on Hwys 89, 160 and 191 into Moab?
Any insight would be much appreciated. Just want to have options in case the weather decides to test us on this trip. Thanks!
