    Congratulations on re-connecting with your long-lost sister and welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum.

    Route 66 continues to attract new fans every year -- there are several posts on this Forum from roadtrippers who have traveled the entire distance, more than once. For a great online travel guide look at this one created by Guy Randall.

    Default Here's a Few

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    One drive I enjoyed, that most people never see, was through the Mojave National Preserve, and of course, there are plenty of unique sights along the old route of US-66. Another couple of little visited locations that are just off the old US-66 alignment and well worth checking out are Walnut Canyon National Monument just east of Flagstaff, and Red Rock State Park outside Gallup, NM. And for old Mexico, check out the various Salinas Pueblo Missions south of Albuquerque.

    Default Here's a Few More

    You could visit Acoma Pueblo, between Grants and Albuquerque.

    You could do a day trip on State Highway 4 through The Jemez Mountains to Bandelier National Monument/Los Alamos, then over to Santa Fe, and back to Albuquerque via I-25.

    The Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks are pretty neat.

    Sandia Peak Tramway will be closed April 9 through April 20 for Spring maintenance. If it’s not closed when you’re here (and the weather is clear), definitely check it out.

    Have a great trip!
