|The "Giant Logs" Trail. Yup. It's wood that's been turned to rock.|
|The wood, er, rock, er, whatever... really is this colorful!|
|You can take a short hike here, off of the Blue Mesa Loop road. I regretted not doing so, but the time saved allowed me an even cooler hike at my next destination. You can't do it all when you can't ride at night.|
|The Painted Desert, as seen from Lacey Point...|
|...and again from Pintado Point. I wish my pictures could be bigger without getting cut off. I gotta figure that out. Maybe I need to skip this fancy "caption" feature. I'll try that on one of my next posts.|
And then I motored north, past a really cute restaurant. I should have turned around. Why didn't I turn around? Instead I had an awful meal in Chinle, AZ, where I was quite aggressively chased across a parking lot by pan handlers before my feet even touched the ground. I was going to have to rectify my poor judgement later. But I had arrived at my next stop, Canyon de Chelly National Monument.
