After spending the night at the Hopi Cultural Center, it was time to move on to our next destination: Bluff City… but not before stopping off at several places (as usual), and most definitely not before showcasing our amazing outfits to the rest of the group. Now, when I say “our amazing outfits” I’m referring to ‘Fran’s Fun Van’ and the things we bought when we were in Williams, which I’m sure you would have picked up on in some of the pictures. The Van consisted of: myself, Rhiannon, Georgia, Natalie, Charles (occasionally), and last but by no means least, FRAN.
Don’t we look so hot?!!
We made a quick stop to look at the awesome view and then to look inside another culture center.
This day was most probably by far the most challenging day because we hiked up and down the colossus Canyon De Chelly. Let me tell you this now, that canyon is one hell of a beast. It may not look it from the pictures, but it was exhausting, cruel and downright scary. Obviously I’d most probably do it again, because let’s face it; I’d do the whole trip again if I could.
And then the dreaded journey back up began…
At the end of an incredibly tiring day, we finally arrived in Bluff, where I was surprised to find out that I’d have the pleasure of having my own room for the next two nights!
We all went out to dinner as a large group (all nineteen of us). Dinner was super tasty, although hindsight, it probably wasn’t as good as it made out to be, as two of our group came down with food poisoning.
The day couldn’t have been completed without one last fun photo-shoot before hopping off to bed.
Tomorrow we embark on yet another hike and visit the Natural Bridges, which were spectacular.
