August 27, Ashland OR to Home

Today we completed the trip, which Ton had started calling Rocks of the West. Some observations:

Two places where we had low expectations really impressed us; Craters of the Moon and Black Canyon of the Gunnison.

The best campground we have ever seen in a National Park was at Capitol Reef National Park.

Monument Valley is spectacular but feels very commercial.

Valley of the Gods is spectacular to see, but very difficult to photograph and convey the grandeur.

The loneliest road in America is lonely but not the loneliest.

P1070134

Finals set of pictures can be seen at Rocks of the West Trip.
