From Santa Fe to Utah
Today we traveled about 450 miles in 11 and 1/2 hours. The trip would have been shorter, but we ran into a sandstorm at Shiprock. The storm prevented me from seeing the sign for the side road that we were supposed to take to the four corners. Tammy, our TomTom navigator, had never heard of the four corners and refused to cooperate at all. Not seeing the sign led us on a 50 mile detour. Once we realized we were headed way off course, we chose an alternate route. After much delay we finally made it to the four corners, but it was closed for remodeling. We felt like the Griswold's on summer vacation to wally world.
