We have had a nice quiet week in Bluff (southeast of nowhere) Utah. There is quite a bit to see considering the isolated location.
There is one gas station with a tiny grocery shop attached. The closest supermarket is 60 miles and the big box stores 110 miles. Good job we came topped up with food and adult beverages.
Just this week I have seen these unusual camper set ups. The white rig has a motorbike as well as the jeep. We recently (in Nevada) replaced our two front tires and will replace the other 4 before heading up to Alaska. Those suckers cost $550 each. That white rig has ten on the puller and six on the trailer!!
We took a day trip to Natural Bridges Nation Monument. A 7 mile hike up, down and around the bridges gave our legs a real workout. Dean makes holding that bridge up look really easy.
Plenty of ladders and steep descents. This Kingcup cactus is going to look amazing in another week.
A couple of the bridges from underneath.
We stopped by Gooseneck Park. Talk about a curvy river. This portion of the San Juan River takes 6 miles of loops to move 1 mile west.
Just a few miles from Bluff we drove on some rough roads and found these Hoodoo formations.
Utah is packed with these things. Every shape, size and colour. We must have seen a zillion lizards and one bunny. Not a snake to be found.
I am always on the lookout for flowers. This Yucca seed pod had finished flowering but just looked interesting. The Indian Paintbrush is busting out all over.
This Yellow Bladderpod and White California Evening Primrose were looking pretty healthy considering the arid terrain.
Moving on to Colorado tomorrow. Jay and Dax we are getting closer……..
