After a mooch about, doing nothing more taxing than 90° lefts and rights, followed by massively frustrating 60mph highway crawls, we enter the National Park and the roads start to whiplash through the mesas, rising and falling between bits of scenery plucked wholesale from a spaghetti western. Huge, 10-metre-tall sugaro cacti fight for space with the little spiky fists of smaller species, all clinging resolutely to the sandy red backdrop. The road surface is smooth, the corners regular and wide - though it's wise to remember that Americans drive very slowly and don't really understand Italian-style overtaking.
