    Uhhhh, makes that every TWO minutes!
    I agree that Route 12 (and then Route 24 through Capital Reef) is an awesome drive. But I think you would do better to not try to shoe-horn it into a few extra hours. Do it when you have time to enjoy the drive and explore the area.

    You have tons of slot canyons and thousands of wonderful visual distractions. It just feels like a v. frustrating trip IMO.
    I've spend 70 days in SW few years back....and I feel I need another 70 . I'd concentrate on 2-3 good stops....and the
    rest will just have to wait till you can check out more thoroughly. Enjoy.
