marcopolo Posted May 17, 2006 Share Posted May 17, 2006 About six weeks ago, I got a lot of good suggestions as to what route to take from Ottawa to Gunnison. I'm essentially taking interstates down through NY and into OH, until I pick up the route Paul Mihalka is following from Cincinnati west (mostly Rt 50). Rather than just re-tracing my steps when I go home, I'm looking for other possibilities. In that original thread a month and a half ago, PhillyFlash mentioned NE Utah, Jackson Wyoming, Yellowstone, Cody WY, Red Lodge Montana, Devil's Tower Wy, and the Black Hills of South Dakota. At the time I dismissed it as perhaps taking too much time. My current plan has me leaving home Thursday, 15 June, arriving in Gunnison Monday, 19 June, and departing Friday 23 June. I want to be home by Friday 30 June latest. My current route is about 3500 kms/2200 miles and I can easily do that in the time alloted. However, I could very easily leave home on Monday 12 June, or even the Sunday. That's a long way of saying if anyone suggests a route through Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota etc., it would likely be longer than the outbound leg I've got mapped out now, but I could easily reverse the two, and do the longer route on my way out, and save my current route for the trip home. The punch line: does anyone have recommendations for an interesting route from Gunnison back to Ottawa, Ontario that differs from my current outbound route? I'd prefer one that doesn't have me making loops way out of my way, but does put me through some interesting roads/places. I've never been in this part of the uS before, so it will be all new to me. I'm also not interested in being stuck behind hundreds of deadfully slow RVs, or ending up in places where it's impossible to find a room. I know, tall order, but it doesn't hurt to ask I figure.
