hwy 139 in Colorado

We are driving from Vernal Ut to Fruita Co.
What the best route?
191 around, or down 139 in Colorado?

I have driven 139. It's a long and winding road, as they say. Mostly downhill, and I did it at night. Wouldn't do that again! Marked as a scenic route on maps, but I wouldn't know about that. I can recommend the Colorado River State Park in Fruita. Nice place to stay.

Douglas Pass is on Hwy 139 and I've towed over it several times with no problems. The pass is steep and winding on both sides so if you decide to go that way, please ensure that your trailer brakes are in good working order.
Safe travels

Took 191 around. DW cast the deciding vote.
Little longer but not bad.
