RV parks are far and few between around Tuba City, so I took what I could get and hope for better at the south rim of the Grand Canyon tomorrow. I plan to spend a few nights in the area, see if there is a stand-by list for mule rides and hike part of the Rim Trail.

Went there, did that, no shirt
Today I drove north on the Devil's Highway (old 666, now 491) so I could say that I have been to Four Corners. My brothers and sisters remember Four Corners as the tavern just south of the Hood Canal Bridge that Gram and Alec visited on a regular basis, but this is the only point in the continental United States where four states meet. It is a Navajo Park and the entry fee is $3 per person. It is also a place where the local Navajos can sell their jewelry, ceramics, arrows, T shirts and flat bread. After stretching my legs and looking at the vistas surrounding the monument, I drove Highway 160 along the southern edge of Monument Valley. Most of the "valley" is above 6,000 ft. It really is quite impressive and would require further investigation if I were younger, in better shape and most of it wasn't fenced off.
