Sunday morning was cool and clear. No sand storms blocking the mountains from sight. I cleaned the layer of dust off the bike, loaded my luggage, and got out of Cortez by 7 am.
There was still some wind to deal with crossing The Navajo Nation but it was easily dealt with compared to the previous day.
I arrived at The Four Corners National Monument just as they were setting up for the day. All of the vendors were busily setting up their goods. Today was going to be a better day for them. And for me.
