After packing up the tent and re-packing Nismo, we went to the Visitor's Center at the Navajo Nat'l Monument and started down the Sandal Trail.... well okay, paved path, to the 2nd leg of our 3 Ruin Tour, Betatakin Overlook. It really is a lovely walk other than the bristling wind we encountered. The scenery is fantastic and the interpretive part is interesting.
You do descend a pretty good amount before arriving at the Overlook. The area below the Cliff Dwelling looks very intriguing too. It would be quite the trip down and back to the Ruins as it is quite steep from what I can tell.
The Tsegi Canyon itself is really quite beautiful too.
|For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination. |
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
