Let’s return in time for a minute. I was so eager to create my next post that I had forgotten about an integral component of the trip.
After leaving the Grand Canyon, and en route to Monument Valley, we added a visit to the Najavo bridge. But first we made a sudden roadside stop when we saw a scenic spot with a mini canyon and some natives selling crafts.
The bridge crosses the Colorado river. The Colorado river cuts through Marble Canyon, and flows through the Grand Canyon (you might have seen it in my photos from that post).
The drive grew quite grim as the rain prevailed once again. It was very wet when we arrived at the Najavo Bridge.
We saw some of the dingy tours from the Grand Canyon passing through the gorge, brave souls!
Our journey to Monument Valley from the bridge included some of the most beautiful scenery yet. One thing I was surprised to see in the middle of nowhere was a Canadian flag.
We had to ascend another mountain to continue to our destination. My mom started to get a bit apprehensive, so I suggested we pull over to take a look at the scenic stop halfway up.
The last leg of the drive, before reaching Monument Valley, was passed by Page, Arizona. I made a note to return to Page, as the scenery from out the back window was blowing my mind.
