Caravan Info 2014 – Arizona

Share Button
Drive 4 Corners 2014 includes BMW caravans from all directions heading towards one central location for our gathering and weekend event. The  Arizona caravan will start in southern AZ in La Encantada (near Tucson) and allow additional participants to meet up and join from Phoenix at a stop in Globe, AZ. An additional stop in Holbrook, AZ provides a meeting point for those coming from Flagstaff, AZ.
The route will start Friday by meeting at the La Encantada Mall at 6:45am. The caravan will travel north east towards Globe Arizona. After this initial stop, a plethora of twisty mountain roads awaits us as we travel to meet additional enthusiasts from Flagstaff at the next stopping point of Holbrook, AZ. A quick lunch break will allow everybody to refuel before crossing the state border into New Mexico and completing the second half of the journey. The next stopping point will be Farmington, NM after travelling through the Petrified Forest and the Native American lands. The last leg of the journey is a mere 60 miles to travel along US-160 towards Pagosa Springs and the Continental Divide.

A note from caravan leader Kai Yu (love2travel168@yahoo.com): This is the route I took up to Pagosa last year. It was a very nice drive with lots of twists between Globe and Show Low. Also fun mountain drive through Petrified Forest. If Tucson group took this route, Phoenix will have to meet us at Globe and Flagstaff would meet us up just before Petrified Forest.

If there are no issues I would say there’s a good chance we’ll even arrive by 6pm. It’s easy to knock off google estimated time without ridiculously speeding. Obviously for the Globe and Holbrook stops, even if we get there early; we won’t depart until the listed times allowing people time to meet up with the caravan.
