Before I head into a no-cell zone...

I'm writing this from the McDonald's in Kayenta, Arizona. Their wifi is only slightly better than none at all. But it beats what I can get from my JetPack or Phone. Before I go north into the emptier quarter of Utah, here's a quick report on Navajo National Monument, about 25 miles southwest of here.

I had no idea what to expect. The name, while honoring the Navajo people, fails to convey anything about fabulous Tsegi Canyon.

There are huge, well-preserved ruins in the canyon. Alas, the guided tours (guides required) don't start until May 29. But the canyon's natural beauty is enough for me.

To make a great thing better, camping is free. The Sunset View campground is for larger rigs, while the Canyon View campground is for smaller rigs and tent camping—with a view of the canyon, of course.
