I am planning a trip may 22-25 and thinking of headed toward four corners area and staying at ute mountain casino friday night in a rental tepee. From there can you recomend any must see destinations in either states or a great place to check out a few days. or should i just head to southern az. I love funky, safe, ecentric, alternative, somewhat weird places. Ie old Hostels, Hot Springs, Roadside attractions, Museums... Thanks Alot

If you haven't been to Utah before, might be worth checking out. Have fun!

I have not been to the hot springs there but the Cliff Dwellings is nice and Hwy 180 is a fun ride from Alpine AZ to Silver City. The Apache National Forest and Gila National Forest are both nice for camping, hiking, hunting (but hard to draw a tag).

Durango, Ouray, Silverton Colorado are great. Million Dollar Hwy, & train ride from Durango to Silverton & back are amazing.
Pretty sure there are some ghost towns around there, & I know there are old gold & silver mines. And amazing views.

Of course Monument Valley is right there, too.


You WILL take lots of pics, and post them, WON'T YOU?

I heard the same from a buddy.

btw, I stay at ute mtn. casino sometimes for work, it's your typical indian casino with mostly slot machines and no alcohol. The riding your talking about is mostly open road flat riding. Monument Vally is a large euro vacation area for some reason. I really want to hit up durango and silverton when I get back from the SV rally.

Dan, you will like the areas your talking about seeing, there are many beautiful views and I'm sure you'll come back with some interesting pictures and stories. Good luck, and remember; the rez cops can write you either a rez ticket (that does not count on your record) or a real traffic ticket, you can't have alcohol or guns on the rez, and they can not arrest and hold you on the rez. ;)

Im most likely headed south, staying a night in safford at roper state park if theres spots avail, then continue to silver city nm area and stay at gila hot springs ranch, all nights are tent camping with two bikes/ two people depending if we like silver city area or not we may continue north then west back to az. has anyone used one of those cheap fleece sleeping bags that pack to the size of a nalgene.

I am heading there too from Colorado Springs and staying more north. We are going to loop around the San Juan Skyway and also hit 141 to Gateway (fabulous road). We are also going to ride 92 on the North Rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Hope the weather cooperates for us… it may be a wet weekend.
