11-06-2013 Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park
I took photos on the way to the Monument Valley, and came to the sign "Valley Of The Gods. Why not, and away I went. What a trip this was, but as a dear friend says "Look More Red Rock". I still love red rocks, formations, and many great things about them. I couldn't get enough, and drove many miles out of the way. What a WAY!!
I arrived at the Monument Valley National Monument, Wrong, was not a National Park, it's ran by the Najho , not covered by the National Park Pass, but only cost $5 to enter. I was also told not recomended for street cars, and that provided tours. I said thanks, and drove through the park. I have been on worse roads, and I would not recommend others doing what I did. However, the knowledge that I have gained, it was almost a walk in the park, compared to other roads I have been on. thorough other National Parks. Now Diansour National Monument roads, they were pretty nasty, to say the least. If I would rather call 911 because I didn't want to go back the way I came. Now that is a Bad Road, yes a walk in the park. LOL.
I left the park, headed somewhere North on 160, and ended up at Cortez, CO. It was late, every battery I had was dead, everyone, and I was very tired. Yes, I needed a hotel, to charge everything, shower, and a King Size Bed! I was in heaven
