Found the Galoop easily but there's nowhere to park, so be careful snapping a photo.

Galoop is a giant loop that looks like it should be part of a giant a Hot Wheels track. There is no sign at the loop, and I could not find anything about it except its name. I even asked the Gallup McKinley County Chamber of Commerce, and they could only supply the name.
