On the way to Moab, I decided to take a leisurely few days & ride sections of the southern UTBDR. Slabbed it from St George to the UT/AZ border south of Mexican Hat. Even though I'd crossed the UT/AZ border 4 times already on the way there, I stopped to take a pic at the 'official' border start. I had passed Lake Powell on the way, & it looked a little different than in the billboard - wahweep marina still near record low water levels. Only got about a mile before I crossed back into AZ for a detour to Monument Valley. A couple pics from the visitor center... ...before dropping down on the 17 mile loop road. Wait at John Ford's Point for the tour bus to roll in if you want to get a classic pic of the cowboy in MV. Artists Point. I really wanted to climb to the base of Mexican Hat rock but it was getting late in the day.
