Awesome drive, fantastic scenery. Take 128 rather than 191 , it's well worth the few extra minutes.

I have been on both ends of the scenic drive at various times but miss a few miles in the middle. Love the Fisher Towers area

Took this road off of I-70 for our recent vacation in Moab. As we were staying in Castle Valley it was the right road to take. As we entered the Canyon my wife and I were held breathless by the view. Neither of us had seen anything like this before except in pictures. We had to stop several times to take it all in. It's also where we launched for kayaking the Colorado River later in the week.

Beautiful area. Moab and surrounding area is so geologically unique, and you get great views of that along this route.

We have driven on this road countless times. But every time I still enjoy it.
Except on cold winter days when it can be slick with ice.

Very pleasant drive and scenic view of the Colorado River. Gorgeous country. Added plus, it doesn't cost you any drive time if you are headed east on I-70 out of Moab.
