ABQ>SLC by motor vehicle.

The girlfriend and I are going to take the ol' van up to Ootah this weekend from Albuquerque. Any tips on this drive from anyone?

I was going to fly, but 230 bucks roundtrip versus 150 in gas round trip....I'll take the latter, and I get to bring the lady friend.

Meanwhile, Alta's base is deeper than Taos' snowfall for the year...

What kind of tips are you looking for? Ive done the drive from Park City to Santa Fe a couple of times. I have always enjoyed the ride. You see some amazing country. It has been about 3 years since the last trip. As I recall it took about 12 to 13 hours to and from Santa Fe. If you can, take some time to stretch your legs in Moab. Moab is a pretty cool little town. There is a really good brew pub there. Rather then take I70 across Utah to I15 try Hwy 6. It would be a more direct then I70. Just take care on Soldier Pass between Helper UT and Spanish Fork, It's known as Utah's deadlist road. I don't know what else you are looking for? Enjoy the drive and have fun at Alta.

Ray's Tavern in Green River, Utah.

Great Hamburgers, very old school western bar, nothing hip about it.

Watch for speed traps between Cortez and Monticello. And as Utah49 sez, be careful over Soldier Summit. It's the tail end of the Wasatch and can get some bad weather.
