I discovered this byway during the planning of our family road trip and I am so glad I did! We took this route from Grand Junction to Telluride (hwy 141 to hwy 145). I was amazing by the changing terrain in such a short period...More

Took this as another way to get to Moab from Grand Junction, great choice if you have the time. Could not believe the variety of landscapes that we drove thru. Have your gas tank full and realize eating choices along the route are few. Stop...More

I travel Hwy 141 often as I live just north of the town of Naturita, which sits on the scenic byway and also home to the only visitors center on the entire 133 mile route. This alternate route bypasses the busy highway serving Montrose, Delta...More

Instead of taking the quickest route from Telluride to Grand Junction, we took the Unaweep-Tabeguache Scenic & Historic Byway (highways 145 and 141) that I had first read about on TA. The scenery was varied: red rocks, flat farm land, mountains, amazing rock layers and...More

A friend and I drove through here on our way from Grand Junction to Bedrock, CO. Amazing views! We had no idea that we were in for such a treat. The canyon changes constantly and is never boring. We left the scenic byway and drove...More

Highway 141 offers a traveler the opportunity for an intimate experience in the canyon country of the Colorado Plateau. If driving from north to south the drive starts by climbing into Unaweep Canyon through layers of Sandstone then entering the 1.7 billion year old granite...More
