Bluff/Blanding, UT

We left Goosenecks SP and headed south towards the Valley of the Gods BLM area off US 163. Unhooked the Jeep and went searching for a nice place to spend a few days. The roads are all the red sand. The weather forecast was for an all day rain. These sand roads turn to slick mud when wet so we just rode around and took some pictures.

Headed south to the Bluff area then north to Blanding. In Blanding we went to the Recapture Reservoir BLM area and stayed the night. It rained on, and off, all day. Our campsite is right on the lakeside with a great view Abajo Mountains across the lake.

In the morning we went in to Blanding for gas and ; groceries. The Blanding RV Park which is across the street from Clarks Market, has a very clean laundromat plus you can dump your tanks and fill up with water for only $5.00 for both. Pops Burrito is the place for breakfast or lunch in Blanding. We has both. Excellent.

One day we spent the night on Comb Wash Road and drove some of the 4x4 trails.

The weather forecast for the next few days is rather dismal so we decided to move on. Tonight we're in Monticello camping on Lloyd's Lake. Filled up with propane at the Truevalue Hardware store.

The weather forecast for the next week isn't much. Some sun but mostly cold and rainy. It's warmest in Moab, so we'll probably head there. Our unseasonably warm weather seems to be behind us.
