day 38: Durango - Lake Powell

Monday 10/9
We leave Durango (without riding the train to Silverton) and head towards Lake Powell. We take Rout 160 and short before “Four Corners” take 41/162 towards Monument Valley. This is a wonderful road. We follow San Juan River and have another picnic at the river. While there was almost no water a few days ago, today water is flowing very fast and took the river over its normal size. After “Bluff” we get close to Monument Valley and have one of the most awesome views of the monumental rocks while the sun shines between dark clouds. Heavy rain hit the park so we didn’t go for today but will come back. In the evening we arrive at Lake Powell and stay at the Lake Powell Lodge.
