After four wonderful days here at the magnificent Grand Canyon, we are readying ourselves for departure. We have a plethora of photographs to share but a slow internet connection has not allowed us the power to upload them for your viewing pleasure, so please stand by! Mary also has a collection of lovely and inspired haikus paired with photos, and those will also be forthcoming. As they say in Jamaica, "soon come"!
Meanwhile, today we head east towards Tuba City and the Navajo Nation Indian Reservation where The Painted Desert and its buttes and strange rock formations await our eager eyes. With several weeks left before our arrival to our little rental casita in Santa Fe, the road ahead is wide open, and we will most likely head towards the Four Corners area, the only spot in the United States where the borders of four states intersect. Unfortunately, the Four Corners Monument is closed for construction at this time, but we can still enjoy traveling through this very special region of the country which includes Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park and other natural wonders.
Thanks for hanging in there with us for more than 8,000 miles of rolling across the American landscape. Hitting the road in search of adventure and self-renewal seems to be an American tradition, and while we have only scratched the surface in many respects, it has been---and continues to be---a wonderful and growthful journey.
