After the Grand Canyon..Go out to Tuba City (near 89 and 160 junction) and pick up Rte 264 east to 191 and go north to Chinle. Visit Canyon de Chelly. There's a campground there right near the park entrance. If you have time, take the guided trip down into the canyon itself. If not..check out the visitor center then ride around the north rim on Indian Rt 64 over to Indian Rt 12.. then North up to Lukachakai. At Lukachakai, take Indian Rt 13 over to Shiprock, New Mexico.

All those routes are paved, but definitely the "road less traveled". Canyon de Chelly is very interesting, and Indian Rt 13 is really scenic, going through a narrow red rock canyon up and over a ridge to some good views of Western New Mexico.
