Is Devil's Highway the same as The Devil's Triangle? If not, could you please enlighten me as to the location?

Hwy 191, eastern Arizona, about a 100 miles of great road between Alpine and Morenci. Also known as Coronado Trail.

Back in the day it was Numbered route 666 which I assume produced the nickname. I read they renumbered it because all the signs kept disappearing.

Ah, okay, I remember now. We bought a new 2016 Corvette Stingray Coupe on July 7th and on July 29th we left New Jersey with 600 miles on the odometer.
We drove across the country until we hit the Pacific Coast and put 12,500 miles in the 40 days that we were gone. We visited 18 National Parks and a slew of National Monuments.

Based on what I read here, I told my wife that on our return trip back to NJ from southern California, that I would also like to ride US-191. I didn't know that the road that we were on was also called The Devil's Highway.

Well, the Corvette handled the twisties like it was on rails. My wife kept a log of the different roads that we traveled on and on this particular stretch of road she wrote - Never Again! Eh, she's not the adventurous type!

I on the other hand had the best ride or drive on that road as can be had. I'll never forget it!

Thanks for bringing back one of the best memories that I've ever had.

Hey Hotrod, did you take a break at the Blue Point Lookout? If you did, hear any of the Mexican Gray Wolves in the area?

I love Hwy 191, can't wait to ride it again in the very near future!

David,
I guess that you're referring to me. No, I didn't see any lookout to stop. Perhaps I was going too fast (did I say that?) and being busy with the paddles on the steering wheel downshifting and upshifting, not to mention the immense fun that I was having with its 460 hps. Oh, yeah, I do remember it well!
