Durango, CO to Amarillo, TX – 492 miles

After a break of a little over a month I am back on the road. I’m leaving Durango and heading to North Carolina eventually. My dear friend Carrie has offered me one of her spare bedrooms while I try and find work.

I had to make a few last minute stops on the way out of Durango so I didn’t actually leave town until 8:45. The weather has been beautiful the last week and I am really sad to be leaving while it is still so nice.

The GPS wants to take me east on US 160 over Wolf Creek pass, but I have been that way so many times in the last few months that I decide to drop south and take US 64 over the mountains through Taos, NM. US 64 between Tierra Amarilla and Tres Piedras, NM is one of my favorite motorcycle roads.

West of Taos there is a large area of alternative houses, ranging from yurts to Earthships. I stopped and took a few pictures of one of the showcase Earthship structures.

A little farther east towards Taos is the Rio Grande gorge.

From Taos I headed south through Mora, Las Vegas and Tucumcari, NM. The road between Las Vegas and Tucumcari is very desolate but runs through an area of mesas.

At Tucumcari I got on I-40 and stopped for the night in Amarillo, TX.
