Route 666

John, not only is that superstitious nonsense, but it’s a shame. Route 666 (at least the New Mexico portion of it) is a splendidly bleak drive and the thought that it is the ‘Devil’s Highway’ only adds to the charm. Start in Gallup after a good night at the weird and wonderful El Rancho Hotel (Ronald Reagan stayed there too!) and then drive north past the eerie rock formation that gives Shiprock, NM its name.

But wait, it’s Friday 13th today – I must go and take some precautions.
