From Cortez, we thought we would head to Bluff, UT, but we ended up at Blanding, Blue Mountain RV Park. The next morning we wanted to explore the area so we headed out and found Twin Rocks Resturant for a little breakfast.
We did visit the small town of Bluff, UT and checked out the pioneer village there.
From there, we continued to drive through Valley of the Gods and Monument Valley.
This rock is called "Mexican Hat".
I enjoyed shopping the Navajo roadside stands along the way.
We even saw where Forrest Gump turned around.
On our way back to camp, the storm clouds were gathering.
While in Blanding, we also visited Natural Bridges National Park.
We checked out the Canyonland Day and Night boat trips and decided to do the Sights and Sound dinner and boat ride on the Colorado. I would recommend this trip. The dinner is at 7:00 and boat ride around 8:00. The guide was informative about the area and pointed out interesting formations along the canyon wall. After it is dark, lights are shown on the canyon walls as majestic music is played. The stars were bright that evening and we also saw shooting stars. We had a very nice relaxing evening.
The next morning, we visited Arches National Park. On my goodness, was it ever amazing!
