On our way south on Hwy 89A, we drove through the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument. There are no roads into the almost 300,000 acre area, only 89A along its southern edge. What passes for a visitor's center is on Hwy 89, which was not on our route. With no place to stop along the narrow, rough 2 lane road, I had to content myself with taking photos through the windshield. It is difficult for an amateur with a digital camera going 50mph to capture the beauty of almost any landscape, and the Arizona desert proves particularly elusive. But trust me, it is gorgeous.
