Chaco Canyon

Chaco Canyon, another one of my favorite places, sort of like Newfoundland, quiet and very interesting.

What was the road like from Port Hope Simpson to Happy Valley? Was there anything on that section?

The 285 km from the turn off to Cartwright to Happy Valley is well laid out, but there is pretty much nothing going on there. The road conditions were better than the section east of Port Hope Simpson, but variable quality. Just a few hunting(?) shacks along that whole stretch. After we got west some distance from the Cartwright turn off, there was an interesting change of geology, from the barrens with huge boulders on bare rock to sand dunes and river rounded rocks. Many road cuts were through what had to be huge sand dunes, now covered with vegetation. Not many big mountains, it is the "flat" part of Labrador. I surmise there had to be a huge glacial lake and rivers that dried up.
