    5 or 6 day ride from phx to UT, CO and back

    Anyone have recommendations on tripping from Mesa to Bryce Canyon, over to Ouray and Telluride, Durango, and back to Mesa?

    one of my favorite rides.

    If you are going near Durango you aren't too far from one of my favorite rides.

    From Durango go north on 550 which merges with 50 at Montrose.

    Continue north on 50 to Delta and go east on 92. This road follows the northern rim of the Black canyon of the Gunnison. You won't wear the center part of your tires.

    92 then intersects 50 and you can follow it east back to Montrose and south to
    Durango, or better yet at Ridgeway take 62 south then 145 south to Cortez Colorado.

    I am also looking for roads to ride in Utah. I find it hard to believe that the State of Utah doesn't provide free road maps (at least I haven't found any available on the intenet) What cheapskates!!!!!!!!!

    I may change my mind and go somewhere else!

    Thanks for your input...indeed it appears that you can't get to Colorado very easily from Panguich/Bryce Canyon area.

    Haven't decided what to do yet.

    My apology to Utah

    After a little more looking I found this link for road maps and information on Utah.

    http://www.utah.com/visitor/contact_us/info_request.htm

    Looks to me that HW 12 is a winner. Wonder if anyone else has any more suggestion!!!!!!1
