Just talked to Brian (bbolesaz) and he recommended a side trip and a restaurant for a mid day stop. Below are a couple maps one showing the side trip on 174 out of Glenwood, New Mexico. It's a National Trails location called Cat Walk. There is a slot canyon with a raised metal walkway through it. The other is a town map showing the restaurant (Daley Diner) and a Conoco gas station for those who want to top off their tanks.
I have made up maps of these locations and the loop itself that I will hand out to anyone wanting an analog GPS. Brian says he can do the 211 mile loop in a lot less than the 6 hours Basecamp suggests so we should have plenty of time to enjoy ourselves.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. You all have a fun getting here.
That's a good side trip Jim. Brother and I did this several years back. Thanks for the tip Brian.
