This area. Will base out of a cabin in Red River and make runs into 4 adjacent states.
Mind if I ask where the map came from? Is it a digital relief or a photo of a plastic relief map?
Have a great trip!
Thanks guys. Lots of pics will be taken.
I can't make out the map on my cheap assed laptop. Where ya going?....Red River,NM?
I love that area! Especially Red River. I was up there last year for the rally. Great roads, unfortunatley I was on the R1100S I traded in on the GS so no off road for me. In fact that's what prompted me to trade up to the GS now that I think about it.
Have a great time!
Have a great time. Ride Safe.
PS: Mods, sorry for the mispost:)
If you get the chance ride the 64 (or is it 74?) over to Chama and then 17 North and back around. Stunning stunning ride this time of year.
Thanks! I was planning on using 64 to get over to the 4 corners area. Also going to the Gourge. I hear that its been highy touristed out these days. Last time I was there, it was just the bridge.
Boy, do you have that one right! The ride past Tres Piedras to Chama is great. An alternative from Chama is to go up to Chromo and to Pagosa Springs is flat awesome! No traffic, great road, incredible scenery! From Pagosa, over Wolf Creek pass (be ready for some road construction) to South Fork, Alamosa, Fort Garland (Kit Carson used to be posted there in the 1840's(?)), then south back to Red River is a great day ride!
I am sorry I didn't get to that area this last trip. I chose to go South through the mountains of Utah and the Bryce/Zion area. I had no idea that area so so beautiful either.
this looks pretty good for a day ride...
The town of Manassa at the far north of your loop is where Jack Dempsey, the heavyweight fighter was from. Back in about 1920, he fought a boxing match in the basement of what is now the El Rancho Saloon, here in Durango. Just a little local history...
Great Mex food in Chama about a mile West of the 64/84 & 17 intersection. Don't remember the name but I DO remember the food.
That's why I wasn't sure about NM. There are only 3 adjacent states!!! I got the picture though. I'm heading out North through this area probably Sunday. Enjoy the trip, enjoy the state. This is what the area around Sipapu looked like two weeks ago. A don't miss paved road is Red River-Angel Fire-Mora-Sipapu-Taos-Rio Grande Gorge-back to Red River. That is a nice 3-4 hour trip in case you need a half day ride. It's raining every afternoon right now, but is really nice and cool, (60 -80 degees) in the days up there. Later.
Texas, Colorado, Arizona, Utah. The four corners +Texas.
Utah on a technicality, but I forgot about Oklahoma......I gotta get out more.
yeah, me too!
