    Awesome as usual.
    What tunes did you use? The singer's voice in the last song is very familiar...having a brain fart right now.

    Thank you!!

    IIRC: Band is Interpol and singer is Leif Ericsson

    YouTube tagged it under the video to the right

    The video's lead-in song is an Algerian singer and the song is from his North African Groove collection

    Interpol! That's it. Thanks.
    Yeah I like the lead in song too, reminds me of a song from the Blackhawk Down Soundtrack.

    Interested in sharing coordinates for some cool spots in this area? I've got a few you would enjoy.
    How far do you travel to visit this area?

    If I have not saved the exact coordinates I can easily share enough info to steer you there. I travel from Southern California and my next visit will be to The Maze district.

    Cool trip what was your favorite section? I'm living near Phoenix until June and have time for 3 and 4 day trips here and there. I would be interested in checking out some of that area but wouldn't be able to squeeze in the whole trip.
    Also those places seemed pretty desolate, see any wildlife?

    It is a little hard to choose! I would rate the Lake Powell overlook as the most scenic and the road into White Pocket as the most fun to drive with the varied terrain and deep sand challenges. Hiking Coyote Buttes was the most fun on foot.

    Be sure to check ahead for road conditions and closures! We have had trips where we would divert to miss a rainstorm in the area of our first choice then come back to that spot later.
