Saturday, we went on a Jeep ride with Don and Dorothy up the Elk Mountain dirt road to Bear’s Ears, 2 little mountains we could see from our campsite. The views were great, and we saw 2 elk and a couple deer on the drive.
Don was getting antsy and was ready to move on yesterday, so we took the Lazy Daze and drove 30 miles south off 161 to Muley Point, an overlook with views of the San Juan River and Monument Valley. There was a 4 mile dirt road we had to drive to get there, and it wasn’t too bad as long as we went really slow. You can camp anywhere there for free, so we found a couple of spots near the rim, and here we are. Definitely our best campsite yet!
And these shots were taken on a hike along the canyon rim. What a great place, and we are the only ones here.
We did have an exciting dust storm last night, which we could see coming from miles away. The wind got pretty intense and we were rocking and rolling for awhile, but we didn’t roll off into the canyon, so we are happy!
