    Default Route across state

    Will be traveling across northern NM late in June, probably going west from Las Vegas to northeast Arizona up eastern Utah.

    Can you NM riders suggest a good route to take? Like to see sights and take my time.

    Thank you

    The following route from Las Vegas, NM to NE Arizona is by far the most scenic.

    From Las Vegas take 518 north to 94 to 434 to west 64. Stay on 64 to Arizona. Incredible high and low mountain riding and views. You will go over the Rio Grande Gorge bridge (630 feet) above the Rio Grande river, ride through the Carson National Forest and ride 26 miles of great twisties and sweepers over Fletchado Pass and down through a beautiful green mountain valley from Angel Fire to Taos. This entire ride from Las Vegas to NE Arizona is one you will not forget.

    Be alert for deer and elk crossing the road on this route.

    Hardway,

    Got the trip planned from Las Vegas NM -Taos-Farmington-Monument Valley and back into Denver for the VTX Rally,

    I see that you are planning on attending. I will look forward to meeting you.

    Thanks, again for your help.
