Monument Valley and Canyon Lands

July 19 & 20, 2015

Sunday we headed out on our annual summer adventure.  The plan is to spend the next 6 weeks or so exploring northeastern Utah, western Wyoming, and northern Montana.  This year instead of driving 10,000 miles to Alaska (like last year) we will be taking a more leisure trip with a whole lot less miles.  Instead of taking the normal route to Utah via Page AZ and Kanab UT we decided to go across the Navaho Nation and visit Monument Valley and the Canyon Lands in southern UT.  This was a great choice as the scenery was spectacular.  Sunday evening we found a great forest service campground called Devil's Canyon which is just north of Blanding UT.  On Monday we continued the northern trek passing through Moab UT and ending the day at Starvation State Park near Duchesne UT.  The park is nice, but as one would expect from a state park - is crowded and noisy.  Tomorrow we will be heading up to Flaming Gorge on the UT/WY border.
