Speeding around southern Utah

Jump to last reply

I'm using mapquest to get an idea of the drive times between locations in southern Utah and am wondering how it will work out in real life.

The route is, roughly: Kanab - Monument Valley - Moab - Torrey - Bryce - Zion. It will be the 3rd week of September.

For Kanab to Monument Valley the speed comes out to be about 60 mph average.
Monument Valley (actually Bluff) to Green River to Torrey about 55 mph.

Torrey to Cannonville on hwy 12 will take as long as it takes. After that the speed would be about 45 mph.

We will be riding a Mustang, with some giddyup I hope, so am thinking we can do better than the mapquest speeds. But I don't know about traffic. Not much trucking, I guess, but there would be mobile homes and trailers that could slow us down.

How fast can I go on those highways IRL?
