Mexican Hat, UT
October 10, 2005
We stopped along a side road near the Mexican Hat rock formation to eat what was either a very late lunch or an early supper out of our styrofoam cooler. I couldn't wait to scarf down my sandwich so I could walk down the wash (dry creek bed) to check out the flowers. Sometimes I'd rather look at the local flora than eat!
