Petroglyphs and Natural Bridges

The planed destination for today was Blanding, UT, but before leaving Capitol Reef, we stopped to view the Petroglyphs and admire, bathed in the early morning light, more massive cliffs. We then headed down Route 95 through the White Canyon. We decided to stop for breakfast at Hog Springs - a quick look at the visitor log reconfirmed our contention that Southern Utah has been “invaded by foreign travelers”. At the old town site of Hite, UT, we crossed the Colorado River and the Eastern end of Lake Powell. The highlight of the day was our stop at Natural Bridges National Monument. This location features three spectacular natural bridges the largest being 220 feet high and spanning 268 feet.



We arrived in Blanding around 2:00 PM and are at a commercial campground, and using the remainder of the day to do laundry, shop for some groceries, and catch up on email and blogging. Tomorrow we will head for Hovenweep National Monument in Utah and then back into Southwestern Colorado.
