And she said if we had to see one thing, it was Blue Mesa. She was right. It's about an 18 mile drive into the park, but it's well worth it. The strata of the mesa was beautiful on the sunny day we went there.
There's a nice path down into the valley below, with the occasional informational signpost. As I said with the Painted Desert, it was a wonderful day, reasonably cool but sunny, and no one was there.
With these views, Americans need to visit our country's parks to understand how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful country.
