Wednesday Early Morning, July 26
This morning I was up earlier than usual even though it was very late last night when I went to bed. After uploading my latest photos to my trip journal, I headed to Shiprock and Four Corners. The trip took me through some very arid and rugged country.
Getting close to the Shiprock proved to be quite an ordeal. It is off US 64 west of the town of Shiprock. There is a road that goes fairly close to the peak but is it ever rough! It was like a washboard the whole way. As soon as I had turned off the highway, I began to regret taking this little side trip but there was no safe place to turn around. I was afraid I would get stuck in the sand.
