Great links. Sorry I didn't see your message earlier.
Left to my own devices, I'd head for Cedar City, then Hwy 12, 24, 95 to Blanding and over to Cortez, Durango and Pagosa...then check if Woof crick is okay, and even if it is, I'd probably drop down through Chama and 64 thru Taos to I-25, then pickem SE to Amarillo. The colors should still be great on this southern route.
However, if you have a schedule ;( then 50 and Monarch looks good. About half the time I prefer Hwy 114 that goes south off 50 about 10 miles east of Gunnison, and comes out in Saguache. Beautiful sweepers through ranch country with no traffic.
Have a good one...so many choices!!
