Cortez, CO to Kayenta, AZ

We woke to find it snowing, but warm enough that nothing stayed on the ground. Scott says its the first (and last) time the SOCAL cruiser has seen snow.
Some snow stuck around on higher elevations

Not long into the morning we find 4 Corners closed
 and that saved a few minutes. I hear the actual 4 corners isn't where the monument says, but I don't think that matters a whole lot to most people going there.

Visibility is the best we've seen.
The dust storm followed by a nice wet snow really cleared the air.
And note how little traffic there is!

I started to see little, mini sand dunes all over and figured we must be getting close.
Seems like there is nothing but sandstone in southern Utah and northern Arizona!
Now we must be getting closer.
I mean, these are pretty impressive.
And finally we arrive at Kayenta just south of Monument Valley.
Caught these horses running free on the way back from MV
