"Livin' in the High Desert" Gallup by histrionia62

Gallup Travel Guide: 53 reviews and 138 photos

I lived in Gallup on a work assignment for six months. The main attractions are the hiking and biking in the desert hills, Route 66, and the fact that Gallup is the "Indian Jewelry Capital of the World."

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Easy to get to, diverse Native culture, mutton sandwiches
  • Cons:Cold in winter, poverty
  • In a nutshell:a gigantic trading post
  • Last visit to Gallup: Apr 2005
