Go ahead and top off your tank: this drive packs in 47 miles of adventure stretching from Kanab to the aptly named Kodachrome Basin up north. You’ll wind through a beautifully stark landscape on an unpaved road (watch out if there’s rain and mud in the forecast), rolling through the desert oasis of Paria River Valley.
