17 mile Drive into the Valley



M-ahhh-nument Valley. Yet another spot you've seen on TV and in movies for years, but you have to see it in person.

We decided not to take the guided tour (starting at $40/person for 2 hours) and took the Jeep into the wild. Not really so wild, but certainly bumpy and dusty. We did see one lizard in middle of the road but he was not so impressed with us. It took us about 2 1/2 hours to make the 17 mile loop but it was truly amazing.

videoWhen we got back from this, Dave and I got back in the car and drove over to Four Corners. I have been wanting to see this, even tho' I know it's now believed to be in the wrong place. Scott stayed with the dogs and we drove an hour and a half, saw the 'monument' bought some fry bread and hopped back in car and returned to the coach.

Tomorrow we say good-bye (for a little while) to Scott. He is going a little farther east and we are moving north. We will see him again probably in July. He is good company and we wish him fun adventures.

It's been fun. Let's do it again sometime.
