Monument Valley, UT.

 Our first day in Monument Valley, we entered from the south along Hwy 163 out of Arizona and entered San Juan County UT.

 Even the views outside the Tribal Park are stunning.

 We got ourselves checked into Goulding's RV Park just a few miles away from the Tribal park itself. We arrived without reservations, so were put in a 4 spot area just outside the main RV area. We still had full hook ups and an even better view out our front window.

 A few days later and it was off to Monument Valley and the sights we had come here to see.

 Once inside the park ($20.00 entrance fee) you are greeted with this amazing and iconic view. We checked out the visitor center and museum and then were off on the 17 mile self guided backcountry loop. The road is pretty rough in places but any high clearance vehicle would have no problem. Matter of fact we saw several small cars on the loop, we hoped they were rentals, again glad we have a Jeep.

 Ok, enough talking, I'll leave you with a few shots of our trip around the park.






Another great day out. The entire southern Utah area is just amazing. Yes I know, it's just another desert to some, but if you can make your way out there, the landscapes can be magical.

Ok, finally caught up with the blog from our time in the Monument Valley area. We are now (as I may have said before) at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas. We'll be here until the 3rd and there's lots to explore out here (besides the strip) not our cup of tea. So stay tuned for "Las Vegas" off the beaten path. We'll see you then.
