Road Trip from Texas to Utah

Road Trip from Texas to Utah

Myself, girlfriend and my German Shepherd are looking to take a 1-2week trip to Utah in December 2018. Dates aren't finalized, but likely weeks leading up to Christmas.

We could either leave from Houston, or Amarillo depending on what route we take. I'm looking for suggestions on routes to take both to and from Utah back to Texas, and cool things to do along the way. (What to see, eat, camp,etc...)

As well as suggestions in Utah. Nothing is planned yet, as we want to see what others have enjoyed and suggest!!

I'll be in my F250 and will likely have a small camper


Thanks in advanced!!

If planning to visit national parks pets are very restricted. You cannot leave them unattended in hotel rooms or campsites. They are not allowed on trails, visitor centers and restaurants.

In that time frame ... I suggest West Texas, Big Bend NP. Consider Southern New Mexico & Arizona areas as well... Most Utah attractions may, involve Winter driving conditions & (without on-board heat)uncomfortable camping... Happy trails ... carracar
