This is a beautiful route starting in the mountains and ending at I-40. After Las Vegas, I had the road all to my self.

Small ski and summer resort.
In July 2007 I was on this road and it rained almost constantly from Taos to just before Mora where they were having a street festival. There was no sign that it had rained there at all and the sky was beautiful. Less than two miles on the other side of town I ran into rain again and it didn't stop until I got to Las Vegas. I swear to God it was the only sunny spot on the road. They must be living right.
Las Vegasat 114km
If you need gas, get it here. The next gas station is at least 90 miles. Also, almost no traffic.

I was so low on gas, I had to head for the Interstate from here but you could continue to Tucumcari
Finally a gas station. A Phillips 66 on the corner of 129 and old Route 66. Crusing along Route 66 by yourself while the highway buzzes at 80mph felt like I was in a different time.
