Wow, Thanks for the pictures. Maybe some day I will get out and about more. Your photos make me believe that I should.

And thanks for reminding me to check in at your facebook/blog thing more.

Gary,

My usual type of questions ... did you take your Class C down or up the Moki Dugway and also ... did you take it into Canyon de Chelly? If so - how difficult?

Looking at the Moki, it doesn't seem like a big deal for our/your 24 foot Class C. My only concern would be dealing with the meeting of someone coming from the opposite direction on that road with our wide rigs.

Great photos though!!

Took the C down...wouldn't hesitate to take it up. The Moki is pretty eye filling place but they run semi's up and down it...so that should tell you something. There are a few narrow spots but also lots of wide.About 1/3 of the way down..watch for the pull off to the left. Big enough for 2 C's...you want to go in there and walk the path forward. A bit of an initial rock scramble but after that, clear sailing. You REALLY want to go see that view.

Canyon de Chelly is all paved...except for the floor..which you could go in with a Jeep, if you hire a guide. Or you hire a Jeep and guide..or you drive the two rims..north and south. You can hike down and across at White House ruins..about 3 hrs, return.

For those planning on the Goosenecks...you get there and realize how badly you want a fire...and there is NO wood. Make sure you get some prior.
