Saw some dirt to play on.... I'm not sure what pass this was, it split. I didnt really care, it's all beautiful.





































































I turned around and headed back south on 550 to Durango........



The lens cover on my point and click must be dirty, it kept sticking.

I had it unprotected tethered to my tank bag ....














Durango...












Lunch time....












Looked at a map after lunch and decided to make my way to Mesa Verde National Park. Rt 160 west out of Durango.

Is that mesa verde? Never been there.

Edit: Upon reading the words (such a chore) I see it is indeed Mesa Verde.

After checking out the park for a couple of hours, I decided to head into town........... Cortez,

and see if I could find some cheap lodging....









Found a cheap room, right next to a liquor store.

Four corners.... Ok.

Had a few the previous night....little tough on the get-going of it all... decided to head to the corners and then in to Utah at some point after spilling beer on a map all night.



About 45 minutes after passing Shiprock...........It came to me, that I should not have been passing it .... Wait, what. Where are we going anyways.... and who the F*ck is driving ?
