Roads and highways for touring in Four Corners

I've got a lot of info from here about utah, thank you everyone, but i might be heading into northern AZ/NM after that, into the navajo nation to visit a good friend of mine. Then from there probably head further east to check out the old homestead of Cimarron, NM (long story there) and then up to some other friends in Denver, possibly by way of the western slope (well actually probably not), if i feel like it. Or not, who knows what i want to do.

But anyone know anything about those long and significant roads out there in norther AZ/NM? hgwy 191, 160, 64, 264?

many thanks!!!!!!

When you hit Cimarron tell Joey Turner (should still be the police chief) that Chip said 'hey'.
Not much that can be said about the roads that you probably don't already know. On 64 folks will be driving anywhere from 50-100mph, lots of traffic around Farmington, Bloomfield and Taos, little or no traffic anywhere else, gotta watch for drunks always, especially around Farmington.

well no, i actually haven't been out there since i was a kid so i don't know what the roads are in fact like. i live in california. but good to know about the part of 64.

and if i meet the police chief i will indeed say Chip said "hey." do you remember seeing the (ugly) cement statue of my great great great grandpa in Cimarron? i also remember 80 cent milkshakes from the place downtown. that was about sixteen years ago, though.
