Title: Gallup NM to Durango CO
Post by: nobachi2000 on October 16, 2011, 10:23:14 pm
I'm planning a one way shortest route road trip to my nephew's graduation from Gallup to Durango. Is there anything I need to know about this area?

All on Navajo Nation land.  I haven't been on that road, but have been on Hwy 191 (by car) in the same reservation.  I would do research and be careful.  Lots of poverty, alcohol, dogs.  Other people have reported positive experiences cycling Native American lands, so maybe I've just been unlucky.

I rode the last 50 miles or so from Farmington to Durango 30 years ago and it was wonderful.  Going back wasn't, because of the headwind.

Nice! It's one way for me.
