We kept driving and driving, stopping in the middle of nowhere for a breakfast burrito on an Indian reserve. Monument Valley was not too far away. The terrain in Arizona is just incredible. One minute, you're driving in the middle of a flat desert, the next, you're in the middle of some incredible red rock formations. We had to pull over and capture the moment.
We get back in the car and drive some more, my head is pounding and I sleep a little bit
We stop for dinner somewhere outside of Denver, I am not hungry but I get a slushy that makes my head feel marginally better than it did before.
It's 10:30 when we finally get there, and Ally is waiting for us with her roommates giant Great Dane standing at the door. We are Ally's first Couchsurfers, so I try and talk with her a little bit, but my head feels like it's going to EXPLODE, so I go immediately to sleep in the basement, after figuring out what our plan is for Denver. Ally says we should be able to stay an extra night, so we plan on taking her out tomorrow to the country bar. The one with line dancing and a mechanical bull... YES!
