For the last 6 years we have volunteered at the ABQ Balloon Fiesta, only once did we see a whiff of snow on the Mountains. It is the first week of Oct. We then drive south through NM to TX no snow there either. I was stationed at Ft. Bliss in the 60s and only saw snow at the first of the year.\
I'm guessing you will be fine, however we have seen snow at the grand Canyon in Nov.

If you mean 180 from Deming, NM north to Reserve, NM picking up 191 to Eagar, AZ. it would be an o.k. route in October. Then to continue on to the Grand Canyon you have many options but you could continue on 191 to St. Johns, AZ and get on 180 taking you to Holbrook, AZ and I-40. Then head west.

We just went on 191 from I40 to St.Johns and it was the worst ride we have ever had. We have a super f250 pulling a 27 5er and had to slow down to 50 mph. I though we were going to get sea sick - horrible.
