  We left the Rockies behind, passed by the Four Corners Monument, where you can stand on the point where the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah meet, and enjoyed the rapidly-changing geologic landscape.  
  It was a beautiful drive, and we've stopped here in Page, Arizona for the night - home of Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell, the second largest lake in the country.
  As the big-rock craggy mountains receded into our rear-view mirror, we began to see huge red-rocks all around us - some rounded and smooth with "blobs" on top, looking almost as though some prehistoric giant had pooped - others, exploded straight up out flat ground all around them, like giant headstones or modern art sculptures...thus, the name Monument Valley.
