Route 163 Utah to Arizona

What a drive! We got up in the dark at an unearthly hour in order to reach Monument Valley before sunrise. As the drive from Blandings in Utah to the valley was done in total darkness apart from the headlamps on the car we had no idea what was passing in the darkness. Sunrise at Monument valley driving the floor , followed by breakfast at the View hotel (very good bacon) and then a dash across to the South Rim of Grand Canyon for a walk and some photos, followed by lunch. We headed home using the same route and caught what we missed in the dark in daylight and a dust storm. What a revelation! Just a few pictures to give a flavour of the day. If you are in the area, find this road and drive it. 9/10
