I'm in the Blanding, Utah area at the moment with no real rush to go anywhere. There are a few "Islands in the Sky" in the South West / Utah. They are little Mountain Ranges pushed up here and there. This one is the Abajo range on the edge of Blanding, Utah. I was pretty surprised when checking it out. Cedars, Pinyon Pine and Sage brush give way to Ponderosa Pine, Oak and Aspens. The area has offered a nice break from the heat and lots of photo ops.
Noticed a number of free dry camping sites as well as an inexpensive pit toilet/water spigot campground. (Nizhoni.) Think it's $10 a night or $5 with a Park Pass.
Wow, doesn't get much nicer than that! Wish I could visit Utah this time of year. Maybe one day.
I was thinking the same thing do you know the elevation .
Photo was taken at 7750'. The peak behind on the right is around 11,200.
Wow that's up there guess that's a no go for us with the wife lung condition it would make it hard to
Move around there.
I thought the Blanding area was very nice in 1970. There is an area outside of Blanding called Black Mesa that we test fired missiles from there to White Sands NM. I was the one wearing black boots and OD colored outfit! I plan on going back there next year on our long extended camping trip.
Very cool Eddie. I just finished a book by Tony Hillerman. Part of the plot involved test missiles that went down over the Navajo Nation "back in the day".
