driving from St. Louis to Salt Lake City---suggestions?

Jump to last reply

My best friend and I are driving from St. Louis, Mo to to Salt Lake City, UT in early August and I am wanting advice on what route to take. I know the quickest way is through Nebraska (i did this one last year), but I am thinking Kansas and Colorado would be prettier (ok...really just the colorado part ;-). We originally were going to camp and see a show at Red Rocks in Morrison, but due to time, the lose of driving hours that come with camping, and no shows we are excited about, we have decided to put that venue back on our bucket list for now and save camping cross country for a trip when we have more time. I am looking for suggested routes, or places worth seeing that would help us determine our route. I was thinking maybe trail ridge road? I am looking for a scenic bang for our driving buck (more like time than buck). I would also be very appreciative for suggestions of great food and good hole-in-the wall places where one could get a drink and maybe some music after a long drive.

Thanks in advance.
