4-Typed Pages

"What was the best thing about your trip?" is the first question our friends ask. A good question, but hard to answer. The red dots on this map show where we've been in Thistle this past several months. Lot's of enticing spots, so picking favorites is challenging. Yet, 4-typed pages is my answer, time-after-time. Four-typed pages?

In Flagstaff, Arizona, we visited our friends, Phil and Liza. While we were there, Phil sat down at his computer and generated 4-typed pages of his suggested Utah itinerary. Phil's suggestions were for back roads beyond the average tourist's knowledge. Knock-your-socks-off views, and more...

Hikes to petroglyphs and cliff dwelling on remote trails.

Back roads of dust and mystery and great dry camping.

The 4-typed pages became sacred, and once, when we misplaced them, we became frantic with searching. Covered in Phil's suggestions was Scenic Byway 12, a Journey Through Time, from Panqitch to Torrey, Utah. It took us two weeks to drive, from end-to-end. 122 miles. We didn't see it all.

We also were on the Trail of the Ancients where we visited Natural Bridges, Monument Valley, drove up Moki Dugway, and boondocked at Gooseneck and Muley Point.
