In the valley

There's a 17 mile loop through the valley that you can drive, carefully, but to get off the road you need a guide. I hooked up with a great one, Ray. We loaded up in his truck and headed for the back country. He took me to some of his favorite spots, and I got to see some really interesting country.

We were kind of cursed with bald blue skies, but it's an expansive land with lots of big rock formations.

The mix of colors are what is truly impressive.

Well off the beaten path and accessible only by 4-wheel drive vehicle is this view of sand dunes leading up to the totem pole rock formation. A few clouds made the skies a little more interesting.
