    Anyplace south of I-70 is great. My personal favorites are the same as almost everyone else's personal favorites: 12 and 24. If you cannot do any other roads in Utah, 12 and 24 will leave you with a wonderful memory that you will never forget and your friends will forever envy.

    It's a good state all over. But probably the best part is the southeast of it. And over there it's all good.
    Get the Butler map.

    If motels are an option for you I highly recommend spending a night or two in the San Juan Inn (and trading post) in Mexican Hat UT located on a cliff overlooking the river. Charming place to stay and have a nice, relaxing place to chill with homestyle food on site. An excellent jumping off point to many, many interesting areas including Natural Bridges Dark Sky Park, the north entrance to Monument Valley, Muley Point / and the famous Moki Dugway road (gravel), and Goosenecks State Park to name a few. This is my absolute favourite area in the southwest desert.

    Possible extreme cold at higher elevations and heat in the lower areas. I would be ready for both. Carry water and those great Butler maps. Hit some of those National Parks and you won't be disappointed.
