The Changing Scenery

Monday we left Blanding, headed to Flagstaff, Arizona, for a few days. For more than 2 weeks we have been amid the colorful rock formations in Utah. As we approached Flagstaff the scenery changed. It was a beautiful drive.

We drove through a narrow canyon for a short time.

On the other side we saw more rock formations. These looked like what we had been seeing.

But then the shape and color of the rock changed.  These two formations were thin layers of gray rock.

Then we passed more gray stone, but with more thickness.  A sign described this as church rock.

Then the vegetation and the rocks changed for a while.

These two towers weren't named as far as we could see.  Like we saw often along the road through the Navajo Indian Reservation, there were booths set up to sell the jewelry and other artistic works of the Navajos.

For a while it looked like we were driving on the moon.  I'm not impressed with this lunar landscape.

Finally, we cane to the mountains surrounding Flagstaff.

We will be here for a few days before heading to our house in very hot Gold Canyon to prepare to fly to England in less then 2 weeks.
