DAY 2 – Albuquerque to Gallup – ( On 5B Option, we ride to Santa Fe this day )
We start the day with breakfast in Old Town Albuquerque. Next we follow the Route 66 path, and end at the little town of Gallup, at the Rancho Hotel.The historic El Rancho Hotel and Motel has hosted a numerous array of movie stars including John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Joan Crawford, Kirk Douglas, Doris Day, Gregory Peck, and Burt Lancaster. The rugged terrain surrounding Gallup was popular with Hollywood film makers during the 1940′s and 1950′s for the on-location shooting of Westerns. Actors and film crews would stay at the hotel during filming. On 5B Option – we would add a day here, and this day Ride to Santa Fe, and the next day Ride through Madrid to see Maggie’s Diner and more, before getting to Gallup.
