Natural Bridges National Monument
Much like Arches National Park but way less crowded, and closer to drive to. Make sure to pack a lunch or snacks and plenty of water to take with you.
South of Canyonlands National Park, but somewhat out of the way, is Natural Bridges National Monument, protecting some outstanding formations. If you are in the vicinity, or if you haven't had an opportunity to view a natural bridge before, this park is definitely worth a stop. The main tourist…
The roads and pull-outs here are very well designed, to provide views of these incredible, naturally formed "bridges", from very near your vehicle - ideal for people who cannot walk far. For the more adventurous, you can hike all the way down into the canyon.
“Fun and Unique experience. Best Ribeye Steak in 500 miles. Reminiscent of the old rough and tumble cowboy camps that yearned for a bit of refinement! Looks like an old log cabin inside and out, with lace table clothes, linens and fine flatware and stemware. Bring your favorite bottle of wine - more than reasonable corking fee. Hosted by Bob Mussellman - a man of direct communication and a surly sense of humor. And a small piece of advice: Don't order the steak "well-done". Please tell him I said Hello!”
“The vegetarian turnover (aka Calzone) is awesome! Open 11am- 9 pm Closed Sunday When they are busy, the wait can be a little lengthy. We often call in our order ahead of time.”
“30 minutes south of Blanding. This museum features pioneers that settled Blanding and Bluff. It’s free to visit and it’s a cool place for adults and kids. Checkout la bunch of log cabins furnished with family heirlooms from the actual pioneers and their stories. There is a place for kids to pan for “gold”, hand carts to pull around, “steer” roping, and pioneer clothes for kids to dress up in. My favorite part is the homemade brownies and cookies sold for $1 .”
