US 191 from St. John's, AZ to...

The Utah state line. Anybody have anything to say, good or bad, about this route? Fuel stops (diesel) along the way?

Thanks,

Bob

I drove part of that route last year (I-40 to US 160). It's pretty open country, hilly in places; mostly through the Navajo reservation. North of Chile the road gets pretty wavy and in bad shape in places; go slow and you won't have a problem. You won't have trouble finding fuel in Chinle or Ganado. If you get to US 160, go west to Kayenta for fuel, food, etc. North from there takes you through Monument Valley (on US 163). You won't find much in the way of fuel except in Monument Valley itself, and sparse fuel until you get to Bluff.

Thanks, all! Goal that day will be Blanding, UT. Will probably top off on fuel in either Garnado or Chinley. Just dread the road between there and Utah. Looks like about 125 miles between Chinley and Blanding.

No reason to dread the road. It's a very nice, scenic drive.

Well, we made it to Blanding. From St. John's to about 20 miles north of there road was terrible. Could only manage 45 mph for fear of breaking a spring pack. Smoothed out real good south of Sanders, AZ. From I-40 to Chinle road was very good. Chinle to Round Rock was pretty bad, but smooth (and narrow) from Round Rock to the junction of US 60. Rough from that point until Bluff, Utah, then mostly OK.

Thanks, all!
