Most Beautiful State

When so-called experts rate states for natural beauty, California usually comes in first.  Utah tends to rank 4th or 5th.  A strong case could be made for ranking Utah higher.  After all, it doesn’t have a dramatic coastline.

What it does have is an extreme number of unparallelled national parks, Zion, fine national monuments like the new Bears Ears, and exceptional state parks, like Dead Horse Point.

While I debate Utah’s rating, I want to nominate Interstate 70 between Salina and Green River,  where Ruth and I are, as the most beautiful interstate drive.



About roadsrus

Since the beginning, I've had to avoid writing about the downside of travel in order to sell more than 100 articles. Just because something negative happened doesn't mean your trip was ruined. But tell that to publishers who are into 5-star cruise and tropical beach fantasies. I want to tell what happened on my way to the beach, and it may not have been all that pleasant. My number one rule of the road's disaster is tomorrow's great story. My travel experiences have appeared in about twenty magazines and newspapers. I've been in all 50 states more than once and more than 50 countries. Ruth and I love to travel internationally--Japan, Canada, China, Argentina, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, etc. Within the next 2 years we will have visited all of the European countries. But our favorite destination is Australia. Ruth and I have been there 9 times. I've written a book about Australia's Outback, ALONE NEAR ALICE, which is available through both Amazon & Barnes & Noble. My first fictional work, MOVING FORWARD, GETTING NOWHERE, has recently been posted on Amazon. It's a contemporary, hopefully funny re-telling of The Odyssey. View all posts by roadsrus
