ABQ - SF itinerary

Jump to last reply

DebitNM & ElendilPickle & others,

You've helped me map out half of my trip and now I'm planning the ABQ to SF segment.
I have limited time, which I know is not ideal, but for various reasons, I am confined to 3 nights for this segment. This is in late May, so have long daylight hours.

1) Should an overnight in ABQ before heading to SF be a priority due to elevation? I did experience some shortness of breath in Bryce Canyon, Utah.

2) I am questioning three possible routes:
- drive early AM from ABQ (via Rt 25), stopping at Tent Rocks, overnight SF.
Next day Bandelier, continue Rt 4 into ABQ, overnight ABQ. This would give us all day
for this segment as could arrive ABQ late. Fly home 2 PM next day.

- drive ABQ to SF (via Turquoise Trail), back track to tent Rocks, overnight SF.
Next day same as above.

- Drive ABQ to SF (via Rt 25), stoping at Tent Rocks, overnight SF. Next morning in SF,
afternoon day trip to Bandelier, return for second overnight in SF.
Drive Turquoise Trail to airport for return flight at. 2 PM. This misses Rt. 4 drive through
Jemez, etc. and means driving day of airport departure.

Sounds complicated when I write it out....Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Lottie
