I met up with Dave from Colorado at the Navaho Travel Plaza in Gallup, NM.
After snapping a few pics, Dave led me on an awesome drive down the Salt River Canyon. I wish I had my video camera set up to record the stunning sights and wonderfully twisty roads with dramatic elevation changes!
Old bridge on the right; new bridge on the left:
Bugs from Kansas on the bumper, dust from Oklahoma in the engine bay, and water spots from Texas, too!
