Before you even think about hitting the road, let’s talk about your car. It’s not just about filling up the gas tank and checking the oil. In Southern Utah, your vehicle is your lifeline. The region’s winding roads, steep inclines, and occasional dirt trails can be tough on any car. So, make sure your vehicle is more than just roadworthy—it needs to be Utah-worthy.
Start with a thorough inspection from a trusted mechanic. Check the brakes, tires, engine, and especially the cooling system. Overheating in the desert is a real concern. Also, ensure you have a spare tire and the necessary tools to change it. You’re going to be far from any service stations, and the last thing you want is to be stranded in the middle of the Utah desert.
