There is an extending ridge which runs from about Kenton, OK to the front range of the Rockies near Raton, NM.
This ride takes you through the canyons west of Kenton, past 'dead' volcanoes and eventually along the ridge as you head towards Folsom and Raton.
I rode this 8 years ago, but memory says there are virtually no services along the 59 mile stretch.
It is very remote and 456 even turned to gravel and cow S*#! at one point for a while.
The scenery in Northeast New Mexico was phenomenal.
