With the last USA trip post we were just starting to head from Santa Rosa into Northern New Mexico heading for Santa Fe. As it turned out,and I didn't realise it at the time,this was the original way that Route 66 took.
|We came from this direction and already quite a way up|
in New Mexico having passed Santa Fe.
|Maybe Heinrich Himmler didn't commit suicide afterall ?|
|This group of students were Geology students on a field trip from|
a Alabama University.
|We were heading in this direction|
Further on, we did go through hilly,green forested area
which I believe was possibly a Apache Indian Reservation land.......
....well we stopped for a coffee and the place was owned by Native Americans
|By this time it was early evening and we were in Colorado.|
At one point on this road I had been thinking to myself how mild it still felt,but minutes later it was almost as though somebody had opened a fridge door and I was bloody freezin'
|Our Motel for the night in Cortez,Colorado which was ran and owned by a German lady|
and her 'Great Dane' .....I mean the breed of dog and not a huge fella from Denmark.
|The next day and heading for Monument Valley.|
I think this sign was just after the 'Four Corners' Monument
where the four States of Arizona, Utah,Colorado and New Mexico meet.
|The main road that takes you to the those most famous|
of Rock formations and also into Utah.
|If you like 'remote' then this could be the place for you.|
Better make a list when you go shopping as you wouldn't want to forget anything eh !
|The road that takes you to the South Rim Visitor centre and luckily, for me,|
there was a petrol station there too..............rather bizarrely !
