A bit late in getting it done, but here is a link to our report of this years trip into the four corners area.

Enjoy

Re: Navajo Nation Trip Report

Nice report. And great little animated trip map. What did you build that report in?

The report was made on a Mac using iWeb
The animation was the toughest part. It took me a while to get it the way I wanted.
My Spot device created all of the waypoints on our trip.
http://www.findmespot.com/en/
The waypoints were uploaded into a program called Mytracks.
http://www.mytracks4mac.com/myTracks/Start.html
That is the program that generates the pin and draws the route.
Next I used a screen capture program to generate a movie. There are a number of them out there to make screen capture movies for Youtube. I experimented with a few trial versions until I found one that worked for me.

Re: Navajo Nation Trip Report

I can see the main pages, but I can't view the slide shows. Something about a missing plug-in that my computer can't identify. I'm using Firefox if that matters.

I'll see what I can do and let you know. The slide shows were made with a Mac so I assume Quicktime should be the plugin Firefox needs. FWIW I havn't seen any problems with Internet Explorer. Any webmasters out there?

Re: Navajo Nation Trip Report

Excellent trip report and pics; thanks for taking the time to put it all together.

I had a similar reaction to Zion vs. Bryce. If you only have time for one of the two, Zion for sure.
