Well, we can't leave this AWESOME place without a few more pictures, so after a photo shoot we headed off to Flagstaff - a lovely town with a real centre, and a great cup of coffee! I wish I had got a photo of the happy, friendly dog with little booties on - maybe it was to protect his feet from the hot tarmac - who knows - but quite a sight!

We then visited the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest - see the pictures. Amazing to think these trees stood millions of years ago and yet these remains looked just like the original even down to patterns of the bark.

Just before arriving in Albuquerque we witnessed the most crazy driving ever. The driver got off the highway, but must have decided that was not the junction wanted after all, so just swerved, drove over the rough land and back onto the highway, cutting in front of the car two in front of us, all at about 60 miles per hour. It was a miracle that no accident occurred!

We keep getting caught out with time changes, from Mountain Time to Central Time, so had to settle for a veggie Burger King as everything else was closed!
