Return trip from Moab to Albuquerque?

We are driving from Albuquerque to Moab, staying one night in Cortez for Mesa Verde NP, were wondering if after our trip in Moab is there a different way to get back to Albuquerque? Maybe thru Arizona? Have to do in one day but have a very late flight...thanks

You can return via Monument Valley - another spectacular look at the American Southwest.

Have fun.

Tumbleweeds route would take you across the three mesas of the Hopi Nation, one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.

Another option: if you stay on 191 south past Bluff it will take you to Chinle and Canyon de Chelly. You can then continue on to Gallup and Albuquerque.

What time of year are you coming? Suggest to stay Far View Lodge for Mesa Verde instead Cortez. Moab-ABQ already can take up to a 7 hours drive with a stop so I don;t think you'll have much time for detours.

Not much change of scenery and Canyon de Chelly is so beautiful it deserves a lot of time.
