Bluff, UT to Globe, AZ (1/8 & 1/9/2017)
Leaving Bluff early in the morning, there was still lots of snow-covered red rock to enjoy, although much of it was hidden by fog or low clouds. It was tempting to drive out of the way to see Monument Valley in a blanket of snow, something I've wanted to do for a long time. Another option was to stop at Canyon de Chelly, which was very near my route. However, I was ready to leave the ice and snow slush behind, so I kept driving. Before long, there was less white stuff on the road and on the rock formations. It felt pretty good when the sun finally began to break through the clouds.
