Road trip for the Range Rover 350

So Quinton says the 350 RR will be ready for me to pick up on the 31st of this month. I'm going to fly up and drive her back. Does anyone have a suggestion for me for the line I should take on the way back? Whenever I've driven west I've always gone straight across and through; NM, AZ and then Cali. This time I was wanting to see parts of NV and UT. Any suggestions on 'must see'?

Stuff in Utah

Lots to see in Utah beside the salt flats. Zions NP , pink coral dunes, Bryce NP, Arches NP, Fish Lake, San Rafael Swell, newspaper rock, Mirror Lake Highway, Antelope Island, Bear Lake, Great Basin National Park(technically Nevada I think), Park City, That is just a few of the things to see and do. Utah will surprise you, it is not all red rock and desert. And there is the LDS Temple which I hear if you don't live here it is something people like to see and experience.

There are a few good microbreweries as well, and a whiskey shop in Park City.
Enjoy your trip.

Thanks Andrew. I'm sure the trip is going to fly. Utah looks like a beautiful state, I've never been. The plan is to visit as many trails and parks as I can ...I'm pretty excited about getting to know the RRC by driving it back in this way. A little vision quest.

So the RR 350 is coming to the Austin area?
Need a co-driver? I've covered 43 states. Mostly by motorcycle.

Seriously? Way to call shotgun Luis. Yes, it's coming to Texas. I had been kicking around the 350 in a rover for so long, super neat to see Quinton had the same idea. So I have a balance of my beautifully slow series and crazy souped up RR. We could meet up for a burger and a beer to discuss. PM me your info.

Dammmit... Nope, just can't do it...there's already enough guys on here... I like to think there's some cute women on this forum to at least offset all the uncouth heathens..

Wonder where this 350 ended up? Did this story ever end well?
