Day 172 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways
I’m glad I didn’t go with the 17 mile dirt road drive at Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park yesterday, as I spent most of this morning off roading. My first destination for the day was to Muley Point which can be reached after climbing 1,100 feet over three miles along a dirt road with 10% grades and 5 mph switchbacks. A variety of road signs prohibit RV’s, vehicles over 10,000 pounds, and trailers. Within the first mile, I encountered all three…giving me second thoughts about making the ascent given I have a 9,500 pound vehicle. After the three mile scramble up Moki Dugway, visitors must turn left on Muley Point Road that is “Impassable When Wet”. I presume due to the softness of the road given it was relatively smooth and flat.ON THE ROAD AGAIN!
