Situated on the main road, it was just a few feet away from where the 4th July Parade ended, so we had some good views. The hotel had a quant little gift shop and just across the road was the Anasazi museum. There was no fridge or wifi, but there was cellphone reception. Restaurants are within walking distance, depends on how much walking you'd like to do.

We invited them over to our campfire later that night where we all roasted marshmallows and told stories around the fire. It turns out one ...
... the end of the previous hike but all we could see was that they were brown and fuzzy/fluffy.
The first bit of the hike was very steep but the rest followed mostly along a stream bed and was much more relaxing!
At the end of the trail we decided to walk back along the road - a much flatter option!
Along the way we spotted some deer right beside the road and got to see some ancient petroglyphs.
Then back in the car ...
... courses for breakfast! The sun is still shinning but that horrid wind is up again today so glad we are on the road. After a stretch of rather boring highway we turned off onto highway 24 and I really enjoyed this part of the drive.
