NM 550 Albuquerque to Bloomfield at night?

Jump to last reply

QUES about driving Rte 550 from Albuquerque to Bloomfield in the evening/night?

We're planning to travel from Albuquerque to Bloomfield, NM and use Bloomfield as a base to explore Chaco Culture HS for a few days in mid-April. We would like to spend the day Tuesday exploring Albuquerque museums, then drive to Bloomfield for the night. What is Route 550 like? Can we drive it at night in mid-April? My thinking is museums close at 5, grab a bite to eat and head out of Albuquerque by 6, arriving in Bloomfield approximately 9 - 10PM.

Why? The original plan was to spend the AM in Albuquerque and drive to Bloomfield in the afternoon, but the museums in Albuquerque are closed on Mondays. It would be nice to have a full "museum day" in Albuquerque.

This is part of a longer 4 week trip. This part: FRI arrive Taos. SAT explore Taos, then drive to Santa Fe. SUN Santa Fe. MON Santa Fe AM, Albuquerque PM. TUES Albuquerque Museums then drive to Bloomfield. WED-FRI Chaco. SAT Aztec Ruins NM and on to Mesa Verde.

Is the evening drive from Albuquerque to Bloomfield reasonable? Are these "good" roads? Any comments on the plan?

Thanks!
