I am sketching out a ~12 day, 50-90 mile per day bicycle tour on gravel bikes with 32c tires and rigid mountain bikes with drop bars and 50c smooth tires (all with front low rider panniers) for the first two weeks of April from El Paso through the Gila National Monument  We love scenic areas and would also like to incorporate some dirt roads.  We would greatly appreciate any recommendations or suggestions you may have as we adjust the route,
