So Tuesday night, which is probably the most difficult night to find lodging, is now covered.
Let's talk Monday night. We'll be leaving from Denver on Monday morning. We have 2 options for routes:
- Up through Cheyenne, across WY, down to SLC, etc.
1,175 mi – about 16 hours 37 mins (Google Maps)
- Across I-70 thru Grand Junction, up to SLC, etc.
1,168 mi – about 17 hours 43 mins (Google Maps)
Either way the distance is nearly the same. If we want to travel slightly more than halfway, we could aim for the UT/NV state line. That's 647 miles: appox. 10 hours of driving according to Google Maps.
Is that too far on the first day? I was thinking that if we knocked off more than half on the first day, we could roll into our Tuesday night digs and kick back some more.
