Day 5) Thr 9/19 Toured Dead Horse Point & Canyonlands. Got some great pics of the Schaffer Trail.

Day 6) Monument Valley via Mexican Hat. Stayed in the park at The View Hotel.

Day 7) Monument Valley Indian guided tour (Navajo Spirit Tours). Lots of fun & Indian history.

Day 8) Travel to Mesa Verde, Stayed at Far View, stops at Moki Dugway, & Valley of the Gods

Day 9) Mesa Verde by car. Traveled to Durango.

Day 10) Durango-Silverton Railroad.

Check out my reviews of the highlights of this trip.

The Navtec tour, the Navajo Spirit tour, and the Durango-Silverton train were the best part of our trip.
