We were welcomed by Gary and Claire into their home. Our room was very comfortable and had a great view, even a little sun room, and chairs out on the verandah. The view during sunrise and sunset as the light plays in the valley is wonderful and the stars plentiful, but a bit chilly to stargaze. Breakfast was served at 8.00 for all guests, each day different and both very tasty and it was interesting chatting with fellow travellers. Possibly a slight disadvantage is the 10 mile drive to the San Juan Inn where food was dull, but maybe that's the trade-off for a secluded location beside a very small town with only a couple of eating choices.

On leaving Cortez, we drove along the McElmo Canyon, where we found Sutcliffe Vineyards. We met Joe the winemaker, and David the nephew of the owner who told us about the winery and how the canyon has been used for growing produce since the Navajo grew peach trees there. He let us sample a couple of wines ... only a sip of each as it was barely …

the sand, with prickly thorn-bearing plants abundant. We had only a
two man tent along and were supposed to be renting 2 sun shelters for
the others to tarp out and sleep under and for us to eat and rest out
of the intense sun. The rental place had no sun shelters when we
arrived (even though I reserved them in January and had an email
printout to prove it!), so all they could give us was a beach
umbrella with half a pole. We had ...
Just got to Monument Valley. I think the word epic is widely used incorrectly but I feel like epic view is in order here. We drove down a 17 mile off-road trail to see most of the valley and then hiked up close to the main fixtures. Some of the coolest things I've seen hiking. Also saw some wild horses including a few babies. The cabin is up on the ridge. Incredible view. Looking forward to seeing ...
... Navajo people and traded hand crafted items such as rugs and jewelry in exchange for food and other goods. Later on they were able to make a connection with Hollywood, and John Wayne ended up making the John Ford movie, "Stagecoach" here. There are now lodge rooms and dining rooms as well as our campground. In 1962, Knox College of Illinois took over the property. In 1981 the LaFont family bought it. This is a very interesting area in and of ...
... red sand from our shoes and socks and guzzling ice cold water in the café (our own supplies were now both running low and the temperature of tea!).
A few more photos and we embarked on the second way of seeing the wider valley: the 17-mile sand-track driving trail around the valley floor. Here, the car-change really came into its own – the Rogue would have done OK around here but the Jeep thrives in this terrain and has 4WD as well, so we ...
