New Mexico Roadtrip

This weekend, we will be taking a trip to New Mexico. We plan on driving through most of the state's major cities in the northern half of the state, including Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Taos, Farmington, and Gallup.

The proposed trip route is listed below: (subject to change)

Friday, July 2 (OKC-Tucumcari):
I-40 West -> NM 469 North -> U.S. 54 East -> NM 39 North -> Harding County -> NM 39 South -> U.S. 54 West

Saturday, July 3 (Tucumcari-Santa Fe-Red River-Raton-Albuquerque):
I-40 West -> U.S. 285 North -> NM 502 West -> Los Alamos -> NM 502 East -> U.S. 285 North -> U.S. 64 East -> NM 38 West -> Red River -> NM 38 East -> U.S. 64 East -> Raton -> I-25 South -> Albuquerque, NM

Sunday, July 4 (Albuquerque-Gallup-Shiprock-Farmington-Albuquerque):
I-40 West -> Arizona state line -> I-40 East -> U.S. 491 North -> U.S. 64 West -> U.S. 160 East -> U.S. 491 South -> U.S. 64 East -> U.S. 550 South -> I-25 South

Monday, July 5 (Albuquerque-OKC)
I-40 East -> U.S. 287 South -> U.S. 83 North -> I-40 East

After this trip, we should have 8 new counties (5 NM, 1 CO, 2 TX) and should also have all of Interstate 25 clinched. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us, as this is the wet season in parts of New Mexico.

In other news, I am still writing Flickr captions from the Rocky Mountain Roadtrip's pictures. I am currently up to Dillon, MT on Day 3 of the trip. I don't think I'll have all of that trip's pictures captioned by this weekend's New Mexico Trip but hopefully I'll be close.

Also, I am hoping to announce another major roadtrip soon that will take place during the last 2 weeks of July. At this time I am not completely sure where we are going, but I will say that it could be anywhere from California to South Carolina to Delaware to Michigan.
