Arches


Frankness

This is the only way to deal with the loonies.

Santa Fe to Moab

Took the back roads today through NW New Mexico, SW Colorado, and finally into eastern Utah. New country for me, and much of it was spectacular.

On the map, the road from Durango, CO and Monticello, UT looks like unmitigated emptiness. In fact, it passes though rich, irrigated agricultural land. Lots of hay meadows, which really are my favorite feature of the mountain West.
