In Mexican Hat tonight. Be in Torrey by noon tomorrow. Wow, the San Juan Inn has really gone down hill but they have raised their prices to make up for it. Last time I stay at this dump

What a great weekend! Thanks for the welcome. Mary and I enjoyed the company and great scenery. Looking forward to a cancellation for Fall since the Chuckwagon is full.

I'm considering trying to make it to the Torrey in Sept., coming from Albuquerque. Would highways 95 and 24 from the Southeast Utah be a good route?

Also, if the Chuckwagon is full, any other recommendations in the area? I'll check to see if there's a KOA nearby.

Thanks

Call the Churckwagon and get on the waiting list. They will call you if and when they get a cancellation.
The Schoolhouse is 2nd best and nicest.
Or Boulder (may have changed their name) or Capitol Reef Inn.
I can't speak about New Mexico, but you would want to get to Mexican Hat, then look around Monument Valley some, then head up 261 to 95, 95 west to 276, then 276 down to Halls Crossing, if the boat is running across the lake. If it is, take it to Bullfrog, then up Burr Trail and into Boulder, then north on 12.
The Burr Trail comes off 276 just north of Bullfrog.
If the boat is not running, don't go down 276 to Halls Crossing unless you have plenty of gas.

Mostly paved. Parts not paved.
Gas is available, just watch if the boat is running or not.

I've ridden whole the Burr Trail, and I still feel guilty for putting my RT through that punishment. And I will never forget the stealth soft sand that had my handlebars doing tank slappers.
