We will be in Utah in September and will be staying overnight in Torrey then driving the next day to Park City. We would like to make a quick stop in Fruita before leaving the Capitol Reef area but we are wondering what the drive is like heading east on the 24 then north on 191 then 6 to Park City or should we double back through Torrey to go up through Salina?
Is there one option that is more scenic than the other or just a better drive - we would prefer a scenic drive than getting there faster.
Also, is it too far out of the way to go from Torrey to Arches NP then to Park City in the one day? We don't have a timeframe to get to Park City and we can leave Torrey early, and yes, I can see on googlemaps the distances etc but I can not factor in traffic etc so have no idea what a realistic timeframe would be.
We will be driving on weekday mid September if that makes any difference.
