SE Utah:Blanding to Natural Bridges
This last weekend was a trip to the Cedar Mesa area and a boondocking trip to Salvation Knoll. One of the best views I have seen, The road looks like nothing, but about a mile down it is a nice flat spot (one of several) i set up at. Views were the ENTIRE four corners area. A looking out the trailer or at most a short stroll leads to views of Blanding, Sleeping Ute Mountain, the Blue Mountains, The Carrizo Mountains, Chuska Mountains, Shiprock, and of course the Bears Ears. A little drive allows one to see the Henry's and Navajo mountain, Grand Gulch is about a 20 minute drive if you are up to hiking, and mule canyon close. Natural Bridges is about 15 miles west, and of course its not too much further if you wish to go to lake powell.
I filled my water tanks in Blanding at Blue Mountain RV Park, for a nominal fee (the price of a cup of coffee), and even though my old girl has her dings and dents (THE TRAILER lol) the lady complimented me on it, though of course she thought it was an AS. So yes im giving a thumbs up to Blue Mountain RV Park - welcoming folks even though i was only getting a tank of water.
Just a word of warning, the Cottonwood Campground in the bottom of Comb Wash has no water, though its so unknown it almost always has space available. (not marked on most maps). Call the Monticello BLM office (435)587-1500 for local info.
BE sure to see the ruins in the area, and a trip through Grand Gulch (for those who like to hike) is something you cant pass up.
Also, looks like it will be a good Pinon crop this year. The trees are loaded!
Ill try and post some pictures once i get the cameral hooked up.
