I left Page this morning around 9:00. Instead of emptying my tanks I added a half bottle of Dawn to each tank and used the travel day as an agitator. I'll empty tanks before leaving here. I do this every now and then. I would prefer to use Calgon and Dawn but I seem to never be able to find Calgon in the stores. I also added some Pine Sol to take care of some sewer gnats that I picked up somewhere along the way.
The trip took me through the Navajo Nation and Monument Valley. I also made a short detour to see The Goosenecks of the San Juan River. I first saw a picture of them on some blog many years ago. Ever since then, they have been on my list of things to see.
I'm a little tired so I'll just post the pictures with captions. Here we go:
|This is the typical land in the northwest corner of the Navajo Nation.|
|The landscape changed a little with this row of hills.|
|You top out a hill and you can see in the distance buttes and spires. The next picture is a close up of the spire on the left of the road.|
|I had to take this one over my shoulder a little bit, but I wanted to get the "face-like" part of the stone.|
|Monument Valley in the distance. The location for several movies, specifically John Wayne's.|
|Road cuts and barren land|
|This is from the next pull-off. I got a wider look at the valley.|
|With no cars coming, I quickly took one from the centerline of the road.|
|The sky added to beauty with the blue sky and puffy clouds. They didn't stick around though.|
|This was a panoramic view. If you look closely on the right, you can see a group of rafter/tubers floating down the river.|
|Nothing special other than it looked neat.|
|This stretch of road came as a surprise. Those trees on the right were the only ones during the whole trip. They came out of no where and lasted for about 2 or 3 miles. Nice change in scenery.|
|I couldn't decide between the two storm pictures so I included both.|
|The storm only lasted about 10 to 15 miles, then it cleared. It was kind of refreshing. I couldn't remember the last good rain I had been in.|
|Clear sailing after the storm.|
|This is the campsite. I will be here for three days while visiting the southern part of Canyonlands National Park.|
Ya'll take care of each other. I'll Cya down the road.
