One thing I know packing up in the snow is no fun. Wendy said I never even did that deer hunting in WI in November.
We thought about delaying our departure from Torrey but the forecast the next three days was the same or worse so on we went. Good decision only about 20 miles down the road we escaped the snow.
We took Hwy 95 south which is part of the Bicentennial Scenic Byway. It had great views with the Henry Mountains down to the Glen Canyon Recreation Area. It passes over the Dirty Devil River and the Colorado River.

So we pulled into Bluff and on the sign it says founded 650 AD, wow. We set up in a small mom and pop campground called Coral Sands, not much here but at least full hook ups and we only planned to stay a couple days.
We let Tim and Renee decide where to go for a ride, the Four Corners or Monument Valley were both about 50 miles, they chose the Four Corners.
The drive was okay but we sure got spoiled looking at all that pretty red rock. The Four Corners Monument is the quadripoint of Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. It is the only place four states meet. It is on Indian land and fee is charged to visit. It also is meeting line of the Ute and Navajo Indians.
Back in Bluff we took in the visitor center and museum. This was the most impressive visitor center we have ever visited. Volunteers take you on a well set up tour and a short movie. They had a good display set up outside but a good rain prevented us from exploring it.
Thanks for following along.
