Stunning drive. Utah 12 gets all the hype as the state's top drive, but I found 95 equally stunning, and much less busy. I took it to get from Capitol Reef to Monument Valley, and for 2 hours I was just about the only car...More

Beautiful scenery! Really a nice route! Not a highway, and at times I understand it can back up with traffic. But a scenic drive, so if you're prepared for that, then you won't get too disappointed if you are slowed down some.

We drove this entire stretch and even though we were very behind "schedule" we could not stop ourselves from pulling over time and time again to take photos along this route. It was simply that amazing........

No, don't believe there is any motel lodging along that route. You either have to stay in Hanksville or Blanding. It's pretty remote along that route. But it sure is beautiful.
