Do you have a favorite place you enjoy driving through or is it all just a blur? Try to be specific as to where it is and why you like it.

Western utah and western nevada, Colorado. Probably my two favorite places so far are Glen Canyon, CO. And eagles canyon, az. Glen Canyon is just a gorgeous stretch of highway. Winding twisting roads that work their way through a canyon with 1000 foot high walls on either side, and you have a nice stream that follows the road for a good ways.

Eagle canyon, az. Is the complete opposite, as you drive over the crest of a hill, you can see the canyon sprawling for miles. The rocks are various shades of red and brown with many plateaus. This probably goes on for 20 or 30 miles. Also, you are totally isolated out there. No cell signal whatsoever, at least not AT&T. Definitely a place you don't want to break down.

I have driven through Arizona and I absolutely agree, beautiful place but man it would suck to break down out there.

Hands down I84 between Hermiston and Portland in Oregon in the springtime. Specifically around sunrise, the scenery along the columbia river is amazing.

I like most of Colorado when it's not snowing, except for the stretch of I-25 between Ft. Collins and Colorado Springs, which is always busy. In addition to Glenwood Canyon on I-70, some of the highways that run through the high country (especially US 24, 40, and 50, and CO 9 and 13) have truly stunning scenery.

I also love US 50 through Nevada, called the Loneliest Road in America. And once I took US 14 from Lovell to Ranchester, Wyoming, which is an amazing drive in the summer or early fall (wouldn't take it in the winter.)

Wonder what "to and from" would cause you to use US 50 through NV? Perhaps Sacramento or Reno to Denver and you wanted to avoid I-80 and Wyoming weather?

I'd have to say the approach to Tehachapi Mountain from the California side. Something about that view just gets to me.

Anywhere in VA, NC or PA. Love the mountains and the challenging drives.

But I'm also a fan of the wide open spaces in KS, OK and NE.

But my all time favorite is anywhere in TX. Don't know what it is, but I love that state. As a matter of fact, we are seriously considering moving down there...
