Side trip day. This was a long one. Over 90 miles one way. The first 50 miles was flat and level. Then things got interesting. Forty four miles of narrow, twisty, up and down road with no breaks. There is another way that is easier but longer and the last 20 miles are the same either way. Worth the trip!
Lots of hiking and backpacking in the surrounding area. The cliff dwellings are outstanding. Some of the best preserved in existence. Will not try to describe it all. Will post a few pictures here and others on the web.
