Long summer trip to Moab Part 4.2 Cortez, CO..

After we rolled into the CG and got set up we went in to look around town. Nice little town. The visitors center was a nice place to get some good information on what to do around Cortez.

I used to live in Western CO...down in the four-corners area there was a Highway 666 (I think they changed it a few years back though) It made for an interesting photo-op.

Nice pics! Love watching the trip and the commentary of course!

Thanks Richard,

I knew what Rex meant. I wasn't going to correct him though.

He is a self admitted bad speller I think.

Oh and it is Cortez. With a Z. LOL

Palo Duro Canyon.

Hey Top your recent travels brought you into our neck of the woods or at least close by.I traveled to Palo Duro earlier this year and was amazed at how flat the area was to then see the Canyon open up.I think I saw somewhere it's was called the grand canyon of Texas.Truly a beautiful site.You guys picked some really amazing scenery to visit.
Great job on the pictures and captions.
