Route 66 Day 13

The next day we were moving on from Mesa Verde in Colorado to Monument Valley on the Utah/Arizona border. Everybody knows Monument Valley: its scenery has graced hundreds of cowboy films including several John Wayne classics. On our way there we felt we should pay a visit to the Four Corners National Monumnet, which has no scenic interest whatever, being significant solely by way of its position: it's where the straight-line borders of Arozona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico meet at a single point. Some time after the borders were established it was found that the East-West line had been put in the wrong place, but despite several attempts to relocate it the junction - and Four Corners itself - has stayed put.

As you approach Monument Valley the scenery begins to fill with rocky spires, until suddenly the full vista is upon you. We were staying in the View Hotel in the centre of the park, so we had a tremendouns view just from our bedreoom window. We also did a 17-mile "scenic drive" which definitely required an SUV's ground clearance, and later we hiked a short trail round one of the buttes. After that we watched the sunset form our room, and then had dinner in the restaurant which serves Navaho cuisine (Monument Valley is in the Navaho Indian Nation).

As for music - while there was no signage on the road, according to our map the road leading down the Four Corners from near Mancos was number 666. The Highway of the Beast, no less.

Wait until you see that big hole in the ground a bit further west.
