Forced to do my driving for this years western hunt from my winter home. I got a couple of 4th season tags for unit 11 outside Meeker Co, last year came in from the 80 and dropped down and ride was great in 4 th. Season last year. I need to avoid the 70 and Denver if at all possible. Was thinking of taking 40 to Albuquerque and taking the 550 north. How is that route ? I’m figuring a little less snow and ice. The 80 was wicked windy with a lot of overturned vehicles go thru the passes, anything like that to be aware of on the 550? I have driven from grand junction to our Meeker and that section I’m ok with. Just looking for a steady route with less traffic and no rock slides.
