I woke up here.

I drove through beautiful landscapes in Arizona, transversing the Navajo Nation on Tuesday. Only a few pictures, some through my windshield or out the window, as the car climbed mountains and came over rises to amazing views — but I have to drive first, and some of those views happened while coming down steep and curvy mountain roads.

Finally crossing the Colorado River at night, I couldn't see anything but the road. On BLM land, you can camp anywhere and they have pullover areas by the side of the road. In the dark, with tired eyes, I could barely find one. My gas heater didn't work, so it was pretty cold by morning! (and blazing hot in the afternoon at these altitudes). So I waited 'til sunrise before making coffee and stepping outside.

I woke up here Wednesday morning.
