Not sure when you're leaving. If you e-mail me your address, at info@morselmunk.com, I will send you a complimentary copy of the Yosemite National Park Guide. Are there any others you would like?

Happy trails!

Average highs in Denver in August are in the high 80s. Average highs in cities along your route in Utah and Nevada can be in the 90s. For more about average temperatures, check out the average weather charts on weather.com.

Please be aware that there are no life guards or designated swim beaches at Lake Powell or on the Colorado River. Swim at your own risk. Swimming is prohibited at all marinas and launch areas.

Route 12 doesn't have scheduled closings, but has been known to close from time to time during heavy storms or other natural occurrences.  These two sites have a good bit of information on the drive, things to do along the way, and information for up-to-the-minute road information.

Safe travels!
