The Secret Is Out

The Other day I typed in US 191 on my Google search just to see what other information is out there regarding this beautiful stretch of US Highway. I was actually slightly surprised seeing that CNN Money had released the following article almost a year ago. When I started this website in 2012, there was nothing that came up in my google search about US191 besides the standard wikipedia definition. I think it is crazy awesome that a big company like CNN is giving it the recognition that it deserves.

Fell free to read about what they had to say about US191 on here, but also click the link to see what other American  road trips made the list!

6 Great American Road Trips

U.S. 191: Utah to Arizona

  • Trip length: 197 miles from Moab, UT, to Chinle, AZ

The scenery along Route 191 is spectacular any time of year. This red-rock country is a geological fairyland of arches, slot canyons, natural bridges and balancing rocks.

The road bisects the Colorado Plateau, which boasts one of the highest concentrations of national parks, monuments and recreational areas in the country. Just off 191 are Arches and Canyonlands National Parks; a short drive away are natural bridges, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and Glen Canyon.

Outside Chinle, Ariz., lies Canyon de Chelly (pronounced “shay”) National Monument. This Navajo land features old cliff dwellings and Spider Rock, a thin sandstone spire that soars 750 feet from the canyon bed.

The scenic trails in Utah’s national parks lure many hikers. Be sure to wear some red to attract hummingbirds. There’s also whitewater rafting, kayaking, rock climbing and mountain biking.
