UT-128 from Cisco to Moab, UT-24, UT-12 and UT-9 are must rides. And just a short ways west off of I-15 is the Valley of Fire in Nevada.
Have rode those roads many times since I live here there are many many more also, the Valley of Fire is a must see. Everyone should see Utah sometime

There are lots of things to see in all regions and states. Oklahoma is to me one of the least picturesque states in the union, but see what I found;

Yes, there is some truth to that. Although, I think that run out is long enough for me to realize what is happening and catch up.

Actually, I think we might have already been there and done that.

I was gonna say I can't believe Monk would let a mere mortal like Donnie run off and leave him. I mean , I've read about those Shaolin Monks before. They're badazz.

Actually I have a little Canon SX710 HS that I wear around my neck so I can take a pic whenever I want. Just slow down a little or stop, take the pic and on my way. This road had so little traffic, sometimes I'd stop right in the road and take the pic.

I had just come around a corner out of the trees and the road opened up with that view, so I just stopped and snapped a couple of pics.

I have been that way several times. I was wondering if you have a more specific "route" so I can see if I have bene there and if not put it on the next trip out west.

Some of the pictures look familiar but I cannot say I remember them well enough to say, "Yes I have been there".

Thanks.

Jim

I'm sure Ron will post up for his specific route but in the meantime here's one of our day rides in that area couple of years back during Rockies Gold from my blog. Highly Recommended!
