Springdale, UT to Kayenta, AZ

Sunrise at Zion National Park
Our Ford Escape rental. We liked it alot.

Back to the hotel for coffee and then out to grab some breakfast. Our room had a patio that opened onto that beautiful scene behind the inn.
Goofing around after breakfast

Heading back into the park for the day
Court of the Patriarchs
One of the patriarchs from the "Court of the Patriarchs"
Did a few hour hike to what was supposed to be a waterfall. No waterfall but alot of pictures along the way.

Leaving the park they have blasted tunnels through the mountains to get out the other side. It was cool but a little scary.

The landscape was totally different on the other side of the tunnel. These grooves in the rocks are created by the wind.

On the way to Kayenta we stopped at "Dogtown".Stop along the highway for sunset, then drove for a couple of hours in the dark before getting to Kayenta.

Kayenta is within the Navajo Reservation (which is dry). This was the night I asked where to buy beer not realizing we had entered the reservation. Ops.

Our wheelchair accessible hotel room
