Don't think I've ever been on that stretch of I-25, but I definitely like the name "Chugwater"!!!

i was thinking the entire length of I-70 is the most scenic in the USA you go through some of Americas largest cities, you go through beautiful mountains, you go through Deserts, prairies,Forests. traveling I-70 always has you guessing what beautiful thing are we coming up upon next.

I might've agreed with you if you'd left out the stretch between Denver and Kansas City... (I-70 through Eastern CO and ALL the way across KS is on my list of "Most Boring Roads in America". Even desolate U.S. 93 in NV is better...)

okay minus the Denver-Kansas City stretch I-70 is the most scenic interstate in the USA. it would be pretty boring to see nothing but corn and wheatfields for 300+ miles

I'd say the Denali Highway in Alaska that runs from the Parks to the Richardson is very scenic.
