Hi Guys -
I posted this in the SD, but someone suggested that I re-post in this forum.
We are driving out to Santa Fe in mid-January with a stop overnight in Sedona. Because there is so much driving (7-10 hours each stretch), we want to take the "scenic route" I have seen posts recommending route 89...but, I wonder if it is safe to do this in the winter? We drive a scion, but we do have a snow chain set for our car...
Also, if is is safe to drive, can you recommend a few good places to eat along the way? We are not into eating Dates...so Dateland is a "pass" for us...but something "non- chain" between the two stretches of drive would be greatly appreciated! We love to take in the local flavor of wherever we are :)
Thank you in advance for any advice you can give!
