I was tired of going to Sturgis so this year I planned to go to Arizona and ride the Devils Highway since I never made time to ride it when I lived there. So, I decided to go there instead and invited a few friends to join me. Hopefully we can make this an annual event with a new destination each year. Today we met at Cabelas at 6am and was blessed with no rain and a beautiful sunrise. I’m on the V-Strom, Cameron’s on the K1600GTL. We headed south on I25 to Walsenburg then west to CO 159. I made a navigational error and instead of heading west to Antonito, we ended up heading south to Taos. We discussed backtracking but neither of us had been to Taos so we continued on to Highway 38 where we did a loop around the ski country. Our new route didn’t disappoint in the scenery department. Had lunch in Taos. We continued south to our hotel in Bernallilo where we were upgraded to suites. Damn nice room and can’t complain. Now to enjoy the pool, some adult beverages, and a steak dinner. Tomorrow we ride southwest to Morenci.
