What Sheep on Yonder Hill Doth Graze?

We Made it Back to Pennsylvania

We're home from our grand adventure. What a great time we had. I still haven't settled down and today looks no more promising. Brad is back to work today. I go back tomorrow. Here are a few photos until I can tell you more about our trip

I think I saw John Wayne out here:Doc McNeal and Elta Begay examining an old Navajo rug brought to the Navajo-Churro Sheep Association's Annual General Meeting in Monticello, Utah:Brad took this photo of Barbara and me at Canyon de Chelly.
