NMBR's Best of 2011 - Never a Wrong Turn

Indian Route 12 - Navajoland, AZ Indian Route 12 - Navajoland, AZ I found a puppy burrowed beneath a dead horse on the desolate flats north of Canyon de Chelly. My steps were slow as I approached and talked sweet to the little dog, hoping it would not bolt for the hills. Then I saw why she couldn’t run away, or even sit up for the matter, her belly and paws were riddled with spines and goat heads. The packed earth beneath the dead horse’s ruptured belly was pink and packed as if the little dog had rolled beneath the beast for days. The torn horse hide hung like drapes over her burrow. It was clear that she had been eating at its flesh and had licked parts of the hide bare.

She then realized that she liked the feeling of the cool water and settled down. She looked scrawny once she was wet and her fur was matted. I lathered and rinsed the pup four or five times until the bath water lost its pink tinge. Full story: http://newmexicobackroads.blogspot.com/2011/07/never-wrong-turn-part-ii.html 
 Luka- Mexican Water, AZ As the sun sank in the cloudless sky, we entered Utah near Boundary Butte. After crossing over the San Juan River, the road to Valley of the Gods meanders between sheer red rock cliffs and smooth sandstone formations. The scenery became more spectacular with each passing mile. The vibration of the road lulled the little put to sleep. With each bend in the road, her eyes would flicker open and shut. - Valley of the Gods, UT Valley of the Gods, UT Luka- Valley of the Gods, UT Luka- Valley of the Gods, UT Hell's Revenge Trail Run- Piloting the NMBR 4Runner up the Hell's Gate Obstacle.- Moab, UT (Cruise Moab 2011, Photo by George Zoros) Hell's Revenge Trail- Moab, UT
