Monument Valley, AZ

Monument Valley, AZ
I started out the day talking with 1&1 about why no one, including me can access my web pages.  They told me the same thing they did last night - they are working on it. Oh well, at least the Blogger page works!

I drove US 160 to CO 41 which turns into UT 162 into Bluff, UT, then south on US 163 to Monument Valley.  I'm staying two days at Gouldings, Site 26 to explore the area, then plan to move north to Blanding, UT for a couple of days. After setting up I tried the web page again, same result.  This time I tried sending an email trouble request.  I'm not sure why it is taking so long to fix it since the last time this happened about two weeks ago they fixed it in an hour.  Maybe it wasn't really fixed?  Anyhow, this is all you get.  I'll write the LakeshoreImages pages, but won't try to post them until I find out what the problem is.

I drove the Monument Valley road for about 5 miles - is is in even worse shape than last year.  I think they avoid doing much maintenance on the road so people will take the tours rather than drive their cars, although I saw lots of low clearance, standard cars on the road.   Probably rentals! In any case, the RAV4 did fine, although it is now caked with red dust.  I'm not at all happy with the photographs - nice color with the setting sun, but I'd really like to have a storm, or at least a cloud or two - the plain blue sky isn't all that attractive, and it is what I had last year.  Oh well...

I'm again having problems with the refrigerator.  Boy, I wish I had stuck with the smaller refrigerator - maybe it wouldn't have given me as much grief.  This time the electric heater stopped working.  I haven't checked to see if it is burned out or the electronics are messed up.  I did make sure the breaker was on & it was plugged in, but I have to take the top grill off to actually check that there is AC at the plug. It runs fine on gas, but most of the frozen stuff got warmer than I'd like before I discovered the problem.

So, until next time!
