Pojoaque to Farmington

I need to go from Pojoaque NM to Farmington NM later this week. My options are to go from Pojoaque to Bernalillo then to Farmington, a route that I am very familiar with. The shorter option is to go from Pojoaque to Chama on US 84 and then to Farmington on US 64. I am not familiar with these highways. I am always eager to try new routes but I suspect that these are fairly mountainous. The Western Mountain Guide doesn't show any issues on these roads. Any thoughts from those familiar with this route.

I'd take 550 it's a much easier drive and the Apache Nugget Casino is halfway between Bernalillo and Bloomington, a good place to stop for lunch since they put up the new building. Rout 64 across the top is through the Mountains, a pretty drive but a little tough. The weather won't be a problem this time of year but take water and lunch, it has nothing to stop at. I did it once in a class "C" V10 Ford and had no problems. I'd take my "A" class across 64, the roads are wide and well maintained.

Still Rt64 beats backtracking.

I had no problems 1.5 months ago on the route you described (through Chama). I took in for the scenery...six miles or something like that longer to where I was going (Goosenecks SP).

Know the roads well. Zip up to Espanola zip onto 84 over the river. We traveled the roads in our rig for years up that way...

Roads are 2 lanes, paved in good condition. Hilly around Abiq Ghost Ranch Area but OMG the scenery is spectacular and a MUST see!

Go the new way you will not snooze a second. We find 550 dull and a pain just getting through RR off I25.

Have fun and enjoy the trip. The sandstone Mtns and Red Rocks are breathe taking.
