On Wednesday we decided to take a break from ATVing (really Emmi needed a break ) and do a driving/hiking tour. First stop was the town of Blanding for breakfast and other supplies then onward! Natural Bridges National Monument is located just northwest of our boondocking location. It was a really bright, sunny day with no clouds making photo taking a challenge at best but here’s what I got--
Horsecollar Ruins are also located inside the national monument. There are trails for walking underneath the bridges and to the ruins but it’s a nice leisurely stroll downhill to the bottom and one grueling hike back to the top—not happening with our two cowboys!
After seeing the ruins we’ve been able to access via ATV and hiking, House of Fire was a disappointment. We weren’t there at exactly the right time for the sun to “light” up the house but we all felt the other ruins we saw were much more spectacular.
So, today (Thursday) Geri and I are once again in Blanding doing laundry—gotta have clean clothes so we can ATV some more! Life is good!
