Hwy-180, Deming, NM to Holbrook, AZ ??

My DW is planning which roads she would like to see on our winter trip this year. One she has selected is Hwy-180 from Deming, NZ going NNW to Holbrook, AZ. A portion is labelled Hwy-191 on some of our maps.

I would appreciate any information those experienced with this road may be willing to share. We'll be traveling in a 43ft DP pulling a toad and we'll be in that area in early March.

Your route is o.k. for big rigs. However, don't try to take 191 from Morenci, AZ to Alpine, AZ. You won't make the turns with a 43'.

Holbrook ... Gateway to Petrified Forest

Ron H, I've made that route you're looking at in my extremely experienced Discovery pushed by my Saturn toad. If memory serves (??) the farther West I got, the better the road got. Holbrook is called many things but it is a rock hounds delight. I worked for a couple of decades for the company that operates the power plant out West of Holbrook and have spent many, many days filming in the area. For what it's worth, I always park at an old rv park on old Hwy 66 which runs parallel to IH40 North of town. If you come into town the way you're thinking, just drive on through, go under the freeway and up the hill. Right at the top of the hill, look over to your left (North) behind a strip shopping center and you'll see the park. Good WiFi, water and electricity and if you ask for it and it's available, they'll give you the spot right next to the laundry at no extra charge. It has a paved patio and is an extra long space. (Don't pick up any rocks if you go to the Petrified Forest)

Thanks for the replies all. It looks like it an "all green" for that one.
