I have always got good advice from this forum so here goes:
This is all in the planning stage at the moment, nothing set in stone. The idea is to stay in Silver City for possibly 2 nights to take in the GIla cliff dwellings (no time last year) and just browse around. From there up to Zuni peublo, possible stay at the Inn at Halona. Stop off to see the Catwalk en-route and would love to see the very large array too. Not too bothered about a guided tour as that should be way over my head! Problem is where to stay overnight in between the 2 as a 4 hour drive is our daily maximum. Impossible to see the sights, scenery and drive for hours at the same time as we do like to take our time. Have not visited the area straight up from Silver City to Gallup before although we did drive the I25 up to Albuquerque last year.
Where can we stay overnight as the area looks very isolated. How about Eagar?
Any thoughts would be very welcome.
