Monte Bona, Executive Director of the Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area, states that the purpose of the Discovery Road series and other videos is two-fold:
“It’s a great venue to tell these great Mormon stories and it’s a way to encourage people to do what people did in my day: Go on a Sunday drive and explore the area. We hope this series will inspire people to drive our Heritage Highway and explore our heritage.”
Discovery Road features a ’55 Pontiac (owned by Manti residents Chad and Tammy Moore, and affectionately named “Love Me Tender”) which travels along U.S. Highway 89, All-American Road State Route 12, and Scenic Byway State Route 24. Using music, storytellers and the characters in the communities along the way, Discovery Road presents central and southern Utah’s rich history, scenery and culture in an entertaining and educational manner.
