After I wrote about the Grand Canyon and had a little snippet about us staying in Kayenta, Arizona…I realized that it should probably just have it’s own post! I was looking through my phone at the photos to add and realized that there are actually quite a bit of photos. It looks like there are a few good ones!
So, here we go!
Like I said in my last post, there wasn’t much to talk about, but I guess I could at least share a little more photos! Why not?
We got to our hotel, and like I mentioned, it was a very small town. It was basically just one of those towns that you pass through and not much is happening. It was their “off” season anyway. Just a few diners, a grocery store, a couple hotels, and a gas station. Didn’t really see any houses or anything. I think there was a school too.
The hotel we stayed at was the Kayenta Monument Valley Inn. It was a cute little inn and it was one of those where all the rooms had their doors going straight to the outside. I loved it because I am such a worrier, I had to have everything from inside our car into the hotel room with us overnight. Jonathan hated it, but it got easier at every stop! Anyway, it was easier to back the car in and bring everything into the room. There was also a sliding door that led to a little sitting area which then led out to a pool. It was way too cold for a dip in the pool but it was nice.
And that’s when we found the gym. We definitely spent some time in there and finally got a workout in! We were like, “Yes. We are on the right track to staying healthy on this trip!” Little did we know, this was going to be the only time we worked out the entire trip! HA!
After we worked out, we decided to go get some food at the diner across the way called The Blue Coffee Pot. It was cute, small, and had a pretty good salad bar. The poor waitress was the ONLY waitress serving. Granted it was small, but every table was filled once we had sat down. She did great, though. And the good was pretty good!!
After dinner, we went back to the hotel room and just relaxed. Relaxing though, is code for rough housing. With driving majority of our days, we tried our best to keep the days short enough that we would be in the hotel about dinner time. That way we could stay awake or get some energy out. The room was very small but cute and the beds were pretty comfortable! So, we rested well to head out the next day to Colorado!
