On Thursday we left Wahweap RV Park on the south side of Lake Powell and headed for Bluff, Ut. The 180 mile trip goes right through Monument Valley, one of the most scenic drives in the country. The first part of the trip was pretty boring as we made our way west on Rte. 98 from Page, then on Rte. 160 to Kayenta, AZ. But at that point we turned north on Rte. 163 and things got interesting.
There were great views all around us as we cruised along the two lane road headed north.
Remember the scene from the movie Forrest Gump where Forrest is running across America? Below is the photo we took as we passed the spot where they filmed him running through Monument Valley.
We left Monument Valley, drove through the little town of Mexican Hat, and approached Bluff. Along the road colorful bands of rock lit up the view.
Soon we arrived in Bluff and set up in Cadillac Ranch RV Park. Dave and Sue arrived a short time later and are in the site next to us. This is our third visit to this area and we plan to show them a few of the neat places we have found in previous trips. There are also many new places we want to visit this time around.
More on that later . . .
