Shiprock, NM to Taos, NM via US 64

Jump to last reply

When I use google maps for a route between Shiprock and Taos, it sends me up into Colorado well east of Pagosa Springs and back down into NM on US 285.

Obviously, it is physically shorter to take US 64 from Farmington (US550) across the mountains to Taos, ultimately crossing the Rio Grande Gorge.

I can tell from the map that US 64 is twisty and probably slow, but is it that bad if I am not in a hurry?

Thanks for your help!
