4-30-12, Anniversary Day

Today was our 35th Anniversary, so we revisited some places special to us.  Leaving Gallup, we drove 100 mi to Ship Rock, the Rock with Wings to the Dine'.  Pictures from several directions, including a pass high in the Chuska mountains, and we picked up rocks.

Then, it was on to Lukachukai (read report on our 2005, 2006 & 2007 trips at and a visit to the Totsoh Trading Post.  We visited with the owner/trader, who had a nice rug in our price range, so Bill bought it - Happy Anniversary, Sandra.  We went on to Canyon de Chelly, another magic place, and celebrated the hour of our wedding with a kiss overlooking Spider Rock - here's a picture to prove it:

Next stop was Hubbell Trading Post NHS at Ganado, then back roads to Winslow - yes, we stood on a corner.  Staying at the grand old Harvey House hotel known as La Posada.  Up sometime in the AM & off to Tuba City, Page, Grand Staircase/Escalante and Kanab.  Today we drove 360.6 miles, 1733.2 for the trip.  Upped our mileage to 28.9 mpg, speed to 45 mph.
