Back in 2014 we decided it was time to visit the south rim of the Grand Canyon and to visit a couple other sites along the way. As always the fastest way from Lubbock is through Clovis and Santa Rosa to I40, then go west. We always try and break the trip up so that we never go more than 400 miles in a day or eight hours on the road. Generally, we try and keep it in the 300 miles and six hour range. After fueling in Albuquerque, NM we stopped for the night at the Sky City Casino and hotel.
