Larry and Lu decided to celebrate their anniversary by renting a 4-wheel drive car to drive Cathedral Valley and invited us along. The road is almost 60 miles long, remote, rough in places, sandy in others, and loaded with washes that become quite dangerous in rain. Rain renders roads with any bentonite in them impassable. (Bentonite is a clay that gets gooey and very slippery.) We could see rain at the edges of the valley, but it never rained on us in the six hours it took us to get back to Utah Rt. 24. We took many photos.
