2013 Subaru BRZ: Road Trip to Utah

July 5, 2013

2013 Subaru BRZ

The 2013 Subaru BRZ is a modern-day version of the Nissan 240SX (or Honda Prelude, if you're not bothered about which wheels do the driving), and it's vastly more livable than any sport compact of the 1990s. At least that's what I think. Come Monday, July 8, I'll put that opinion on the line, as I set out for a 1,600-mile road trip in our long-term BRZ.

The destination is Moab, some 750 miles away. As usual, I'm traveling for work, and although there won't be time to hike in Zion, I'll try to detour onto as many fun roads as possible and take some photos along the way. You are officially invited to follow @eriches on Twitter, as I'll share random thoughts and photos from my travels starting Monday.

    Erin, I don't know what flexibility you have in your schedule, but there is a decent driving road in the foothills of the La Sal mountains east of town. It's a narrow two-lane with lots of elevation change, some tighter turns, marvelous scenery and some rotten pavement for opining on ride/handling balance. It climbs from the south end of the Moab valley up along Pack Creek, meanders north & east along the mountains, then drops into Castle Valley and the river.
