October 19-22 Outlaws Driving Event to Monument Valley
Come join the Arizona 356 Outlaws on another beautiful scenic drive through Arizona and into Utah’s spectacular Monument Valley. Save the dates!
The Javelina 100 Tour starts with a beautiful drive from Fountain Hills on highway 87 amidst the mighty saguaro cacti via Payson to Pine, AZ for a lunch stop in the cool pines. Our first overnight destination is a stay at the famous La Posada Hotel in Winslow, AZ. The hotel was the last great Railroad Hotel built in 1929 by the Santa Fe Railway for the Fred Harvey Company. Welcome to architect Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter's Southwest masterpiece. The hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and includes an on-site art museum.
Photo ops in Winslow include of course, “Standin’ on the Corner in Winslow Arizona”. Off we go to the Navajo Nation Reservation with a stop in Chinle for lunch. Following the lunch and fuel stop, we will divert onto a scenic drive to Canyon De Chelly at Sliding House Overlook.
We then complete our last leg of the drive into Mexican Hat Utah, for our two night stay in Monument Valley. A group dinner in Mexican Hat on Saturday night is planned at the rustic Swingin’ Steak restaurant on the hotel premises. Some things you just can't explain… a relaxing fire in the outdoor Beer Garden, an atmosphere that encourages reflection and a chance to “breathe” while watching your steak or burger cook on their special grill.
Saturday morning will start with a drive to the View Hotel to catch a guided jeep tour. A 2.5 hour tour includes these six stops; West Mitten, John Fort Point, 3 Sisters, Totem pole (area), Artists Point (Eastern View), North Window. This tour adds roads only allowed access by a tour company; Ear of the Wind, Eye of the Sun, and Big Hogan.
After lunch at the View Hotel Saturday afternoon brings a drive up the Moki Dugway for all adventurous Outlaws. "Moki" is a local term for the ancient Puebloan people who inhabited the Colorado Plateau hundreds of years ago. "Dugway" is a term used to describe a roadway carved from a hillside. The Moki Dugway Scenic Backway is a stretch of Highway 261 in Utah where the blacktop turns into a clay road that drastically switches back and forth down the side of a cliff at an 11% grade.
The road is very well maintained all year round and should not be a problem for our beloved 356's, weather permitting. Other options will be the Natural Bridges National Monument or the Valley of the Gods 17m loop.
Save the dates, more information and registration will be coming soon.
