50's pretty lonely all right, and beautiful, I'd call it the route 66 of today, but it isn't the fastest way to get around. I drove 50 to Moab a few months back, and didn't make much time because there was so much to stop and look at. Also, the Nevada Basin and Range is N-S mountain ranges and you drive up one pass and down into the next valley and back up again to another pass many, many times. It slows you down quite a bit.
For speed I'd go 5 South and connect to 15North and go thru Las Vegas, then take UT 9 to US 89. Takes you pretty much to Kodachrome, and saves probably 3 hours total.
