Feeling well rested after yesterday's easy day, I was game for the longer drive east to Monument Valley for the day. I didn't want to spend lots of time driving on this vacation because I only have a week and there is so much to see close by. Today's drive was two and a half hours each way. I left early before there was lots of cars on the road. It was a very pretty, straight forward trip. I opted for the Wildcat Trail hike instead of the scenic drive on the rough road. This way I could get very close to the South Mitten Butte. The monuments were magnificent! After the hike, I shopped at the Visitor Center then found a spot with a view to have a late lunch before driving back to Page.
