This is the hill we hiked to yesterday… The photos we took were from the top of the rock…

The switchback roads we saw from the top are here – we drove down the road this morning on our way out of the park…

We stopped at the Four Corners Monument: Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado…

We continued on, driving through New Mexico and Colorado, until we finally found Utah…

Our campground is in the small town of Bluff.  Pretty non-descript, but we had water and power.  It will be our jumping off point for Goosenecks Park, Muley Point, the Moki Dugway, Natural Bridges, Valley of the Gods, and Monument Valley.

We also were able to add the 30th State sticker to our maps…

We had a quiet evening in…

And no Travel Day would be complete without pictures of the grandchildren…
