Yesterday afternoon we traveled to Four Corners, traveling through some truly awesome country. Afterward, we drove to the town of Mexican Hat, Utah, near a rock formation that looks quite like an upside down sombrero perilously perched atop a rocky mound.
We ate at a restaurant off the highway, The Swingin’ Steak, where there are only four items on the menu: two different cuts of steak, hamburger, and surprisingly, a veggie burger. A thick slab of Americana, indeed.
We drove home at dusk, past Monument Valley on the way back to Kayenta, the desert looking majestic as we cut through the twilight.
We all worked hard today, continuing our teaching and service learning, and tonight we’ll head back to Monument Valley. As of today, we’ve put over 600 miles on our workhorse Dodge Caravans.
