    Short on time to post or load photos as I'm frantically researching to maximize our experience her during the day. With the benefit of hindsight I can see mistakes but I had to do it and learn for myself as I'd have never accepted advice on it. I should have dropped the meteor and the petrified forrest from my trip and continued up from the GC straight to monument valley. The petrified forrest was a bit depressing to see how much it has been raided by fossil collectors. The stores on the way to the southern park entrance had fields of fossil trunks though it's all claimed to come from private land.

    Shooting Monument Valley from Kayenta was a challenge. I tried turning off the main rd on the only bitumised cross road to get close to the rocks and ended up in peoples front yards with dirt roads as the only branches. It felt safe close amongst these people but they were certainly operating on a different socioeconomic scale from me so I didn't want to push it. While I was pulled over a couple cop cars drove past and pulled in 200m up the road to attend what looked like a domestic disturbance.

    The shop selling petrified wood scene is frame 1 of a 5 shot pano (I'll stitch back home) !

    The museum display of a Smilosuchus skull is noteworthy because you could buy teeth from it for $24 each at the store!

    What was the rail telegraph next to route 66 (everything else has been removed but a plaque)
