    Heading up 89 tomorrow from Flagstaff to SLC.

    From searching forums, it looks like 89 is a good two lane road with places to pull off when needed, and passing lanes.

    Also, weather and road conditions look good.

    Never been this route before, are there many steep grades?, and anything else to look out for?

    Safe Travels!

    Hey Shunpiker, US 89 is a good road to SLC, UT. Very scenic. If you take 2 days to do it, the Kanab RV Corral is a good place to camp in Kanab, Ut.

    We started up 89 late morning, and got mesmerized from Page on up to Sevier. We ran out of daylight just on the other side of Kanab and didn't get to Sevier until about 10:30 p.m. Had to watch for the many deer alongside the road, and slowed down accordingly.

    There wasn't much traffic, and overall a pleasant route to drive.

    On our return trip, we may see the daylight side of Kanab.

    The views of Lake Powell, cliffs, mesmerized me so much we lost track of time. Once it got dark, hard to see a pull-out that was adequkate and far enough off the road.

    There was snow this am in SLC, but mostly melted now.

    We have added 89 to our list of great and easy drives.

    Safe and Happy Travels, you won't be disappointed on Route 89.

    We're in SLC now, had to have a little winter, some snow here, some there, but doesn't stay beyond noon. Seems we travel the opposite of everyone else. Oh, well, someone has to march to that proverbial different DRUMMER!

    Enjoy the trip to AZ, Safe travels.
