I'm planning to visit some land in the northeast corner of Catron county sometime this spring or summer and I'm looking for some weather-related advice. Since the land is many miles off the paved road I'd like to maximize my chances that the roads are in good conditions.

I'd like to visit in April but I'm worried the the roads will still be bad from the winter. I also don't want to go too late in the summer and hit the monsoons. It's a long drive and I need some lead time to take time off work, so I can't just wait to find out that the roads are good and head over. Any help improving my chances of a successful trip would be greatly appreciated.

You gonna be up by Aragon? I think they have got a decent amount of snow, you may run into some drifts, and muddy roads depending where your going. For the most part we have had abnormally warm weather for the past month, most of the snow may be melted off by now.

Thanks for the information! I'm going to be northeast of Pie Town, so not near Aragon and from the maps it looks like easier terrain. Hopefully the weather stays warm and things are good by April.

That's high desert. Scrub pine & pinion country. Altitude is between 6-7,000 feet. You can get blizzards in April or barbecue in January.

Most of the county roads are maintained. Get off those - you are on your own. Red dirt turns slimy with water.

Bring a 4 wheel drive & don't count on AAA to respond if you mess up.

You might want to talk to Phepony on here. He lives out that way - off grid. He's a good guy - and would probably come pull you out of a ditch. Maybe. But a contact worth making.

That's good to know. I think most of the way from Pie Town to my destination won't be on county roads, so I'll be on the lookout for that. I'll definitely see if Fepony can offer any advice.
