Is that the VLA between Datil and Magdalena out in NM? Lots of roads out that way for gravel grinders to rejoice in. I hope you stopped in Pie Town .I was thinking of getting a new set of dishes...

😂Pie Town .... "You can check in any time you like but you can never leave"?
Yes it is. The cherry pie was excellent !Is that the VLA between Datil and Magdalena out in NM? Lots of roads out that way for gravel grinders to rejoice in. I hope you stopped in Pie Town .
No way! Great Sand Dunes National Park. Sadly, bikes are only permitted on the roads there, not the dunes. Or maybe not so sadly: this sand trumps FL sugar sand, hands-down. I was just in FL, on a gorgeous sugar sand beach, and I stand behind that statement. You don't sink knee deep in FL sugar sand. At least, I never have.I went looking for Mr Leaf and his Ice Cream Truck.

I didn't find him.
Well, you're just hitting all the good stuff! As you no doubt know, Page is a great jumping off point for Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. I'd been toying with the idea of making a combined cycling/paddling trip out that way later this month, but it's looking unlikely. I understand the water in Lake Powell is so low that parts of Glen Canyon which have been flooded for decades are now visible above the water. I'd love to see that.I'm in Page, Arizona for the night. Tomorrow to Beatty, Nevada, then home on Tuesday. Was good getting out of town for a few days.
Hooray for Mexican Hat! You got a sweet shot of it. I hope you got to enjoy Monument Valley beyond.Rumor has it that the reason it is called Mexican Hat is the person naming it couldn't spell Sombrero. View attachment 55584
Sounds like you've been around the area enough to know, but JIC, it's worth mentioning that Goosenecks State Park is quite nearby to both the formation and town of Mexican Hat. It's $5 to get in and the scenic overlook is quite impressive. They offer camping, and I believe there are some hiking trails, but I've only ever stopped for the amazing view before hitting the road again.I took a few photos from the road. Years ago I drove through Monument Valley. Such a stunning place. Except for the heat, I could wake up to that view every day.
