The 17 mile loop road through Monument Valley on Navajo Land is CLOSED! We thought it was open! No worries, the whole area is Monument Valley and the spot where Forrest Gump ends his run is luckily not closed. They slow traffic with speed limit signs going from 65-35, then there’s a pull-off. We didn’t have to wait long for the road to clear to get my shot. We drive into Winslow, Az, but I didn’t realize it was WINSLOW until we were gone or I would have found a corner to stand on!
We are cutting our stay here short by 1 day because of the closed Monument Valley Road. We booked a night in Blanding & plan to do a hike in Butler Wash Ruins Instead.
It was in the 90s today with 0 humidity. There where tons of huge dust devils, some with debris, and we got take out at The Blue Coffee Pot and had a delicious taco on Indian Fry bread!! If you’ve never had Indian Fry Bread, you must try it if you ever see it!
