We are timid drivers, in that we are intimidated by high mountain roads with sheer dropoffs, hairpin turns, no guardrails; you get the picture. What would be the easier approach from Route 70 to Capitol Reef Visitor Center? Would it be Route 72 South and then 24 East; or would it be 24 South through Hanksville and then West? Yes, we will be coming from Moab. However, I keep hearing about a road called "Devil's Backbone", and it sounds like it's not our kind of road. How can we avoid treacherous, white knuckle driving and still get a good look at Capitol Reef National Park? Or can we? Also, is the Scenic Drive in Capitol Reef a "white knuckle" road? Thanks for all advice.
