First, thank you all for maintaining this great forum. My husband and I are retiring in February and will be driving from Boston to Tucson at the beginning of March. We have found some really wonderful information on this forum to help us plan for the trip. We have our primary route planned (with backups, as many posts recommended, in case of weather problems), which will take us to Amarillo, Texas on I-40.
I know we can continue on to Albuquerque and down I-25 to I-10, but was wondering about U.S. 60 and 70 through Portales, Roswell and Alamogordo. Would that route be more scenic? How about driving conditions on 60 and 70? I'm sure parts of either route will have snow in early March. Thanks for any advice.
