For a late November road trip while pulling the smallest U-Haul trailer with a mid-size SUV, and wanting to see some country not seen before (and not just driving the interstate). I'm looking for advice about routing and I know that the weather is a complete crapshoot at that time of year and any plans might have to be adjusted last minute. (If I can avoid it, I don't want to take I-25 to Denver and I-70 and up through the Eisenhower tunnel)

That said... First half-day's travel would likely be Colo Spgs to Rifle, CO, and second day Rifle to Logan/Tremonton Utah.

Questions for those in the know:

1) Which is an easier routing: US 24 all the way from Colo Spgs to I-70, or US 24 to Hartsell, and then SR 9 north to I-70?

2) Second day, I'd like to avoid the usual I-70 to Green River Utah to (via US 191/6) Salt Lake to Tremonton because I hate that loooooong congested pull from the south end of metro Salt Lake to the far north end. The question: is the "back way" from Rifle to Meeker to Vernal to Park City and then north and west on I80/84 a viable alternative?
