As part of our cross country trip, we plan to leave Moab late afternoon on Sep 14 after a day of hiking. The plan is to spend Sep 15 in Great Basin NP, and then spend that night in Ely. Any suggestions on a spot to stop and spend the night to break up that Moab to Great Basin drive?
I'd also like to hear any thoughts on Great Basin. Another option is to stay in Moab on the 14th. We can see sunset in Arches and get an early start and do the whole drive on the 15th. We probably end up with 4 or so hours in Great Basin, which may be enough since the cave tour seems to be sold out. Any interesting things to see or do along the way to Great Basin if we want to stop and stretch our legs?
