Start in Evanston Wyoming and head South along WY/UT 150 (Mirror Lake Scenic Byway) to Kamas, UT. In Kamas, go left on State Route 32, then right on 2nd South/State Route 248. Follow route 248 west until US Highway 40 where the route ends.
From here you can go right on highway 40 and then get on I-80 and head west if you want to go to Salt Lake City.
Parleys Canyon to Evanston: Mountainous Desert--red rocks and sage brush, with vistas of the mountains; Evanston to Kamas: Mountains and beautiful, green alpine valleys/farmlands, lakes, rivers, etc.
Flat and fast through Evanston/Hilliard. After Hilliard, mountains with turns/curves ascending to nearly 12,000 feet before slowly dropping back down into farm country. As of July 4, 2008 plenty of snow still packed off the shoulder of the road. Watch out for rock chucks, deer, moose, and boy scouts (there's a boy scout camp southwest of Mirror Lake). Take a jacket!
