Our next few days were basically unscheduled.
We planned to drive "the scenic route" from Natural Bridges to Kayenta,
AZ. Then we would visit Monument Valley and anything else
that struck our fancy.
Coming out of Utah, we saw a turnoff onto Scenic UT
261. The road is somewhat unremarkable until you reach the top of
Cedar Mesa. There a sign warns you of an 1100 foot drop in 3
miles. The numbers don't mean much - until you're on this
incredibly narrow, twisting, steep gravel road with right switchbacks
and a breathtaking view of the valley below.
The first time through Moki Dugway was at sunset,
enroute to Kayenta. I was standing out the Hatari seat (moon
roof) taking photos the whole way down. It was so
spectacular that we decided to come back the next day to see (and
photograph) it better.
