|We were on the way to Paige, AZ, and the
Glen Canyon Dam. This is a not-so-good match of the two sides of
the Dam. It is very impressive and there is a good visitor
center. I would presume they still allow walking tours of the Dam
|You can see the visitor center on the right
edge of the photo. That is the bridge for US 89 behind it.
The Dam is on the far left, and you can see the green line near the
bottom. There is a water seep forming the line, and stuff grows
where the water flows!
|After a quick trip past the end of Monument
Valley, we made it to Four corners, the only place you can stand in
four States at once, like my left toe is doing. We must have hit
it at the wrong time. There weren't many Indians hawking their
stuff in the booths there. Most of them place was empty.
|There are probably shearer cliffs that
railroads cut through, but trust me, this is impressive!
|A couple of sights along the way.
