Mexican Hat

After spending the night at the San Juan Inn & Trading Post in the small village of Mexican Hat, Utah, the morning of September 18th was a beautiful, clear, sunny day and offered a good opportunity to take numerous photos of the sights in this area. My first destination this morning was the rock formation named Mexican Hat Rock a short distance to the north of the village. Next was Moki Dugway, a switch-back road cut into the face of Cedar Mesa. I then headed south and took the turnoff to Goosenecks State Park.

After crossing the San Juan River and leaving Mexican Hat, I continued my journey south along US-163 to Monument Valley and via US-160 through the Four Corners area and into southwestern Colorado. The pictures taken in Monument Valley to Four Corners can be viewed here.

In the following map the red arrows show my route. (Click on the map to enlarge.)
