    I wanted to take my kids to a classic, old school motel like I grew up going to. But that can often be pretty dicey these days. Not so at the Prospector., I Pricelined Blanding and this cam up as the highest rated and still at the best price. We drove by and I was concerned. After my Motel 6, Farmington, NM experience, I decided that asking to see the room in advance would be a good idea. It was huge, had everything we needed, super clean and amazing....and gave me a price better than the Priceline.

    We went to Antelope Canyon in a 4x4 truck with an open bed outfitted with benches facing the outside. Our guide, a licensed Navajo, Leonard Nez took us on a tour of one of the most photographed slot canyons in northern Arizona. It is a petrified sand dune created by wind, water and sand. We rode on a 3 1/2 mile long sandy wash to the entrance of the canyon. It's a quarter mile long and 130 feet deep. He shared many ...

    ... no Verizon service. But as we got farther up the highway the landscape change into some of the most beautiful formations and mesas. It was truly worth the trip. And even into Utah it was great. We stopped in Blanding, UT. for the night. The day was not a waste for the views on 191 north. But it is a little chilly here and would not be a comfortable nite in a tent. Tonite was a tent night, but we decided to motel it. If any of you have read Tony Hillerman's Navajo ...

    ... in these and they are also used for ceremonial purposes.

    We make it to Monument Valley with 3/4 hour to spare and met the tour guide in the lobby of the View Hotel. This hotel was used in the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace. Another absolutely spectacular and stunning area. We hopped into the back of our 4WD and bumped our way along sand tracks for 4 hours while Harry the Navajo guide told us about the area and some of his culture. It ...
