I've done that route a bunch going to Heber City. It's all rural 2-lane from Rifle through Meeker and Rangely, to Dinosaur. US 40 is kind of nice. Flaming Gorge would be cool, north of Vernal, and you can continue up to I-80 that way.
I've done the run through Green River and up Price Canyon and it's pretty, too. Since we're leaving Monday I'd be up for pushing as hard as we can and going long to Wendover. So the fastest route would be best, IMO. I'd even stay in a motel Monday night.
