Don't know anything about Utah but bring an extra pair drawers coming through Oklahoma in April. Have a good weather radio and pay close attention as you will be in OK during prime tornado season. I' from the East Coast and I have not gotten use to the spring weather on Ok. Nerve racking!

April and May are the windy months in New Mexico. You can get some pretty good head winds from Amarillo to Gallup. Rocking and rolling and eats up the fuel mileage.

We like gallup route

We live in Albuq. and google maps shows using hwy 550, but depending on the time of day, the traffic in the Farmington area can really slow you down. We take I-40 to Gallup and go north to Shiprock. Ugly scenery, but not a bad two lane road. Stay off of it on Friday and Saturday night. Lots of drunks in NM. Hwy 550 is a great 4 lane highway and has better scenery, so it doesn't make too much difference. Chambers AZ is way out of your way.

550 out of Albuq.

I wasn't clear about the route. From Albuq. go N on I-25 about 20 miles to exit 242 in Bernalillo to catch 550. Monument Valley, and Valley of the Gods are both worth the side trips. Valley of the Gods is a dirt road.
