An alternate route for those who don't like the Interstate is to take Hwy 30 north from I-80 near Little America, WY.It's a good highway favored by many truckers as a way to avoid the Salt lake area traffic.
w-99> I checked my Atlas - don't have a Utah map - and it looks like a much shorter distance, but 30 appears to change to 89 in Garden City. Is that correct?
My plan is to do only RONs (remain over night) until I get to Cheyenne. Since several of the responses are from "natives" of the area, I'm going to expand this post to ask about some things to do and see once I get to that point where we'll put it in slow gear. I've done most of Wyoming, except for the southern section along I-80. Been to Salt Lake and Boise for business trips when I was working, but only for a few days. We're not coming back to TX via the same route, so want to catch interesting things on the way to Cascade.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
