On our 1st day of our week in the southwest desert we headed west out of Salt Lake City on Rte 80, then heading south on Rte 36 a few dozen miles outside of the city. Then to Rte 6, to Rte 132, to Rte 89, to Rte 24, to Rte 12 and finally Escalante.... Around 9 hours later.... It was a great tour of the quieter side of Utah with a few images below of who and what we saw along the way.
