American Locations 32

The trip is from Lewis & Clark Monument, Illinois, to Kickapoo State Park, Illinois, by way of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona

Pipe Spring National Monument, Utah

The next morning we drove northwest from Jacob Lake on Hwy. 89A. At Fredonia, we turned west on Rte. 389. We stopped to see Pipe Spring National Monument. This is the site of a Mormon pioneer ranch.

After finishing there, we continued northwest on Rte. 389 to the Utah border, where the route number changed to Rte.59. We continued northwest on this road to Hurricane.

Here we got on I-15. This was the first interstate we had driven on in 3 weeks. We headed north. It was a steady unrelenting ascent from the desert floor up into the mountains. Yet another scenic drive. We had intended to see the Kolob Valley in the northwestern part of Zion National Park, but it was closed. We had spent 4 days in Zion just the year before, so we skipped the valley this time around to see this more remote section of the park, but it was closed. So we drove on to Cedar City where we found a private campground.
