Views of the Strike Valley

Though it was overcast for much of my drive down the Strike Valley,
the scenery was still incredible,
and the cloudscapes were also wonderful,
and it certainly made it interesting,
wondering where the sun would spotlight next.
The road was a bit washboard-y,
but perfectly passable to regular vehicles--
if you didn't mind driving 5 mph on some spots.
(I wouldn't try it when it was raining, though.)

After about 15 miles or so of unpaved road,
there is a connecting road (also dirt)
that turns west and goes up over the Waterpocket Fold,
across the Escalante Grand Staircase,
into the town of Boulder.
It's quite a drive.
