When I asked the park rangers for recommendations of places to stop along my proposed route, there were amazed that I was going to do it all in a day. That is the sign of a full day. Bryce Canyon, Capital Reef & Cedar Breaks were all awesomely beautiful but the part of the trip that really blew my mind was Utah 12 from Bryce to Capital Reef. Absolutely amazing and beautiful in a “I can’t believe they put a road there” way. unlike parts of US 550, Utah 12 is never terrifying, just amazing. And it has a little bit of everything even, for me, some hail near the summit of Boulder Mountain.
