After another terrific desert drive, I made it from Grants and pulled into Cuba, NM. After dropping Patrick off at the trailhead in Grants to head up the Mt. Taylor, Jaco and I hit the road - a smooth road this time - and headed north.
As you can see, it was just a stunning day for travel as I set out from Grants after dropping Patrick off to begin the ascent of Mount Taylor. It would be the first time I travel through the Navajo Nation (after all this time in NM, there is still SO much to see) and it turned out to be just a wonderful day. Beautiful rock formations, mesas, desert-scapes, and of course, that enormous aqua sky.
If you've watched the Grants, NM video, you saw that we got laid up for a couple of extra days. We had moved in from Joe Skeen free campground to an RV Park for a night to do some laundry and be close to town - and the Asian Super Buffet.
