Today was an easy day. After leaving the cabin at Monument Valley we headed north east toward Cortez, CO. We got some more photos of Monument Valley from the east side and of course we had to stop at Forrest Gump Point, the place where Forrest stops running in the movie Forrest Gump.

The Wal Mart box is doing a great job of protecting Laurie’s toe from the wind. She modeled it for some photos at Forrest Gump Point.

Later we took a ride through Mesa Verde to end the day.
