He clarified above that he meant 491 to Shiprock and then over to 550 to get to Bayfield, rather than going up to Durango I suppose.


Yeah but that means most of his trip is on 491 only a short section at the tail end on 550

491 from Gallup to Shiprock is ok, at which point if you are going to 550 you head east on 64 to Farmington and get on 516 which pretty much ends at 550 take that into Durango then 160 east to Bayfield about 18 miles. 550 in that stretch is not overly wide and a bit hilly in areas but nothing significant.

Take 491 from Gallup up to Cortez decent road depends on your idea of scenic though then hit 160 east to Bayfield 160 is good road

Google has me taking 491 towards Shiprock and than cutting across on Indian service road 5 to 371 than north. A service seems rather sketchy to me.

Just take 491 up to Cortez and then 160 east to Durango as Barry points out. You'll get to see Red Mountain that way. 160 is an excellent road.
