Today we drove from Phoenix to Monument Valley in a rented Nissan Pathfinder. We took a slight detour to see the Sedona area, then continued up through the Navajo Nation to Kayenta, where we stopped for a few supplies, then on to Monument Valley in the darkness.

Chip Thomas's Painted Desert Project connects public artists with communities through mural opportunities on the Navajo Nation. Some of those murals are in the tiny town of Gray Mountain, where we stopped for gas.
We passed many abandoned businesses in the small towns in and around the Navajo Nation.
