The first leg of the trip is over. The only glitch so far was a detour around Page that took
me through Tuba City. I tried to stop and have a bite to eat there but all the fast food places
had lines out to the street.
I did get this photo of an old building and another one of the old trading post built in 1870 but I need to do some photo shopping on that one and frankly tonight I am too tired.
Par for the course the detour also had construction and while stopped by a flagman I snapped this photo of the landscape. This is the Navajo/Hopi Reservation.
We bypassed Page which was fine with me because the last time I stopped there to get a drink at a fast food place I was yelled at for hitting the restroom before I ordered.
So instead I went on and stopped at the Carl Hayden Tourist Information Center just over the Glen Canyon Bridge. It was beautiful and I could see up Lake Powell and down to the bridge.
One more stop for gas in Kanab and now here I am settled in for the night.
Poor Flat Stanley didn't get out of the book all day.
I'll try to do better tomorrow.
Here's a list of some of the things I saw today but didn't get photos:
Buzzards circling something along the highway.
Lots of pretty little lavender flowers along the highway.
The Mystic River
The edge of the Coral Dunes State Park
Some amazing rock formations
A Moqui pueblo
Lots of black cattle in a very pastoral scene
There was very little traffic
Gas prices haven't been too bad
I lost my sunglasses in Flagstaff.
More tomorrow . . .
