Travelling in Mid June.
Have a long day planned leaving Moab (Canyonlands sunrise onwards) around 10am.
Will be stopping at the Dinosaur Quarry at Vernal (3.5hr drive) before making my way for an overnight at Green River.
Want to pass through Flaming Gorge which is naturally en-route, but question is do I go over dam and carry on up the 191 to G.R. This road seems to track far away from the reservoir and im not sure how scenic that would be.
Other option is to drive to dam, then backtrack and take 530 to G.R via Manilla.
Does it make much a difference which route I take? Or is the west side "much" more spectacular. Have 2 drivers this trip.
My route only affords a drive by rather than have much time to explore.
