RE: Cimarron Canyon NM: mosquitos?

Hasn't anyone been to the Cimarron Canyon SP area in NM? Eagle's Nest? Red River isn't far from there, and I know that's a popular destination.We have been to all of those a number of times, but not during the time frame you asked about. We are generally there in late August/early September as the monsoon season is winding down and the summer season rentals are ending. Daytime temps are around 70. There can be frost at night. Often an afternoon thundershower. I don't recall any serious bug problems, although ticks are still active in the grassy areas and forest on warm sunny days.

RE: Northern Virginia to Vero Beach, Florida avoiding I-95

We take US-17 from Norfolk to just North of Savannah every year. There is 4 lane limited access highway around most of the more developed areas. We only travel 200-250 miles a day so can not comment on how much longer it takes. Lots of good places to stop along the way with things to do in Wilmington, NC; Charleston, SC; Savannah and Brunswick, GA; and Jacksonville and St. Augustine, FL.

RE: Las vegas to Grand Canyon on to Sante Fe

Las vegas to Grand Canyon on to Sante Fe As mentioned a route through Page, Monument Valley and Chinle could add some great destinations including Monument Valley, UT-261 the Moki Dugway, Goosenecks State Park, Hovenweep National Monument, Natural Bridges National Monument, Bluff Fort, South Fork of Mule Canyon and House on Fire, The Valley of The Gods, Sand Island Petroglyphs, and Canyon de Chelly National Monument. I-40 follows much of Old Route 66. On the way to Flagstaff from the Grand Canyon along I-40 are Petrified Forest National Park, Meteor Crater and Homolovi Ruins State Park. You can stand on the corner in Winslow Arizona. In the Flagstaff area are Sunset Crater National Monument, Wupatki National Monument, and Walnut Canyon National Monument. Sedona/Camp Verde/Cottonwood are about an hour South of Flagstaff with Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well National Monuments, Tuzigoot National Monument, Palatki and Honaki Ruins, V-Bar-V Heritage Site, Verde Canyon Railroad, Fort Verde State Park, Cathedral Rock, Gold King Mine, Jerome State Historic Park in the area. In and near Grants are the Mining Museum, El Malpais National Monument, El Malpais National Conservation Area, El Moro National Monument and the Ice Cave and Bandera Volcano. Acoma Sky City is between Grants and Gallup. It is said to be the longest occupied location in the U.S. They give tours of the pueblo and there is an RV park next to the casino. In Albuquerque there is Petroglyph National Monument, the Pueblo Cultural Center, the Turquoise Trail and the Sandia Crest Highway. In the Sante Fe area check out the Galleries on Canyon Road. Take a drive up Hyde Park Road (NM-475) to the Ski Basin. We enjoyed Pecos National Historic Park not far Northwest of Santa Fe on I-25. Drive the Turquoise Trail(NM-14) and visit the shops in Madrid where the movie "Wild Hogs" was made. Not far South of Santa Fe is Tent Rocks National Monument. Take the drive up to the veterans memorial for a view down on the tents. Likely a lot more to see and do in the area than you will have time for and you may have to watch the weather for some of the higher elevation locations.

RE: Cross Country Trip: RV or TT ?

I made six trips from the East Coast to Arizona in a Class C with no toad. After switching to a travel trailer in 2007, We have made 10 trips from the East Coast to the mountain states and 9 trips South to Florida. Having the tow vehicle to sightsee, shop, etc. is to me far more convenient. It also allows family to stay in the trailer while the tow vehicle is used to run errands, get serviced or let one do things the other family member(s) may not wish to. For example, I can go fishing early in the morning while DW sleeps in. I have no idea what will work best for you.

RE: Yellowstone area~other attractions we should see

On the East side of Yellowstone, Cody has the Buffalo Bill Center Museum Complex, Old Trail Town, and the Nightly Rodeo. From Cody, a loop of the Beartooth Highway and Chief Joseph Scenic Byway with a stop in Red Lodge is a nice day trip. Thermopolis has the Hot Springs State Park, Legend Rock Petroglyph Site and the Dinosaur Museum.

RE: Need rec for destination in west TX or NM

If you are doing the Las Cruces tour be sure to try the Spotted Dog Brewery. Its just a little ways south of Old Mesilla at UniversityFor those into craft beer, Las Cruces has some good ones. In addition to the Spotted Dog Brewery, there is High Desert Brewing Company, Pecan Grill and Brewery, and Picacho Peak Brewery. If my memory is correct, they all also serve food.

RE: Need rec for destination in west TX or NM

Is Las Cruces worth visiting for a week?In my opinion, Yes. The Old Town of Mesilla sreems to have something going on just about every weekend. The Dripping Springs Natural Area has hiking trails as does the Soledad Canyon Day Use Area and the Organ Mountains, Desert Peaks National Monument. There is the White Sands Missile Range and the Space Murals Museum. There is a downtown farmer's market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are a number of museums and other attractions. Lots of good places to eat. The Alamorgordo area is also worth a visit in my opinion. There is White Sands National Monument, the Museum of Space History, Oliver Lee State Park, and the Three Rivers Petroglyph Site.

RE: I-40 across the country

There a lot to see along I-40. In Amarillo, there is Palo Duro Canyon State Park and the Big Texan on Old Route 66. In New Mexico, Tucumcari still has dinners along Historic Route 66 and numerous murals painted on buildings plus other attractions like the foundry at the Community College. Santa Rosa is another Route 66 town and has the The Blue Hole and Santa Rosa Lake State Park which has a nice campground. In Albuquerque there is Petroglyph National Monument, the Pueblo Cultural Center, the Turquoise Trail and the Sandia Crest Highway. In and near Grants are the Mining Museum, El Malpais National Monument, El Malpais National Conservation Area, El Moro National Monument and the Ice Cave and Bandera Volcano. Acoma Sky City is said to be the longest occuppied location in the U.S. They give tours of the pueblo and there is an RV park next to the casino. Homolovi Ruins State Park is near Winslow where you can stand on the corner. Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest National Park are not far from the Arizona/New Mexico border. In the Flagstaff area are Sunset Crater National Monument, Wupatki National Monument, and Walnut Canyon National Monument. Sedona/Camp Verde/Cottonwood are about an hour South of Flagstaff with Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well National Monuments, Tuzigoot National Monument, Palatki and Honaki Ruins, V-Bar-V Heritage Site, Verde Canyon Railroad, Fort Verde State Park, Cathedral Rock, Gold King Mine, Jerome State Historic Park in the area. All this before you even get to the Grand Canyon. If you do make it to Utah, in the Moab area in addition to Arches National Park, there is Kane Creek Road, Potash Lower Colorado Byway, Upper Colorado River UT-128 Scenic Byway, Sago Canyon, Dead Horse Point State Park, Canyonlands National Park, Needles District and Newspaper Rock. In the Bryce Canyon National Park area are Ut-12 Scenic Byway, Fishlake Scenic Byway, Scenic Backways off UT-12, Burr Trail, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Escalante Petrified Forest State Park, Kodachrome Basin State Park, Anasazi State Park, Calf Creek Falls, Hells Backbone, Capitol Reef National Park, and Goblin Valley State Park.

Much more to see and do than you will have time for so you will have to pick and choose.

RE: Texas State Highway 70

...Can you not "spot check" ground level views on Google Earth or Google Maps (the "little yellow man") along the route to check on the quality of the road surface?...Only if they have ground level imagery of that road. Thanks to those that responded. For anyone that might care, US-60 East from Amarillo to Pampas was good four lane. There was one section of right lane closure. Traffic was light. TX-70 from Pampas to US-83 was good two lane with a few three lane passing sections. The speed limit is 75 MPH which caused me some concern as I don't go over 60 MPH when towing. Traffic was light and mostly passenger vehicles. There was one short construction zone with one way traffic. Again traffic was light so the delay was not long.

RE: Camp host rant

We have encountered situations several times in the off season where the campsite host site is vacant and can then be rented by the general public. Often the host sites have full hookups even when all the other sites have none, so it is a very attractive site. Unfortunately, the camp host sign has not been removed or covered. Confusing for the visiting campers and I'm sure frustrating for the poor soul that rents the site and is then inundated with folks banging on the RV door.

Nobody familiar with TX-70?

Texas State Highway 70

I am headed North from Amarillo, TX to Dodge City, KS. My mapping program and GPS want me to take TX-70 from US-60 to US-83 to US-54. I looked at Google Earth, but can not tell how the road surface is. Anybody familiar with this section of road? Staying on US-60 to US-283 looks like a slightly longer route. I've driven the section of US-283 from US-54 to Dodge City a number of times and it has always been good two lane. Any comments/information would be greatly appreciated.

RE: I40 or I70 west from Zion, NP to NC

Not sure how far East you are planning to go on I-70 before heading South. The past few years it has been pretty rough through Indiana. We prefer I-64 from Saint Louis East. It is better road and not as much traffic.

RE: Jetty Park closed, need suggestions

Titusville is not too far from Canaveral. There are several decent parks there.

RE: Utah 24

UT-24 is a good road. If you are taking US-191 North from Moab to I-70 to UT-24 West; you will be passing right by Goblin Valley State Park which in my opinion is worth a stop, even a short one. If you are going South on US-191 to UT-95 North to UT-24, Goblin Valley is not too far North/East of Hanksville on UT-24.

RE: New Mexico & Texas trip suggestions please

We have spent a fair amount of time exploring New Mexico. Here are links to places that we have visited and enjoyed (in no particular order). Places that we have not visited are not included in this list. Fort Union National Monument, Pecos National Historic Site, Bandelier National Monument, Petroglyph National Monument, El Malpais National Monument, El Moro National Monument, Aztec Ruins National Monument, Salinas Pueblos National Monument, White Sands National Monument, Tent Rocks National Monument, Acoma Sky City, Pueblo Cultural Center, Ice Cave and Bandera Volcano, The Very Large Array, The Blue Hole, Cumbres & Toltec Railroad, Salmon Ruins, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Rio Grande River Gorge, Kit Carson Home & Museum in Taos, Mining Museum, Tucumcari, Christ in the Desert Monastery, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Turquoise Trail, High road to Taos, Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway, Museum Hill in Santa Fe, Canyon Road Galleries in Santa Fe, Ghost Ranch, Chaco Cultural Historical Park, Mimbres Museum, Geronimo Springs Museum, Old Mesilla, Geronimo Trail, Pinos Altos, Valley of Fires, Three Rivers Petroglyph Site, Rockhound State Park, City of Rocks State Park, Poncho Villa State Park, Smokey Bear Historic Park, Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument, Lincoln State Historic Site, Chaco Culture National Historic Park, Oliver Lee Memorial State Park, New Mexico Museum of Space History, Fort Stanton, Organ Mountains - Desert Peaks National Monument In my opinion, the New Mexico State Park system is excellent, If you will stay more than 23 days in their campgrounds, the non-resident annual pass will be worth buying.
