Highway 95 out of Blanding, Utah has two sections of an eight percent grade—the cowboy was a touch concerned about those so I drove the jeep today as we left Sand Island BLM Campground and headed to Combs Wash for some fabulous boondocking. Nina has a great write up in her RV campsite review section about Combs Wash. The only glitch with Combs Wash—absolutely no cell/internet signal. We can drive up to either ridge above us and get decent signal—so blogs will be sporadic!
At Sand Island we scored the only campsite where we would fit. When we scouted out Combs Wash on Saturday it was very crowded in the sites closest to the highway—today we rolled in and found one of the largest sites empty—perfect for our two rigs!
After making our site homey we unloaded ATVs and took off south of Highway 95. We scored!!! The first ATV track we took lead us back into a deep canyon where we found at least six ruins—one of which we hiked up to. WOW!! These were small ruins but perfectly situated. The black marks in the photos appear to be water marks—and we found two different water spring sites on the ledge where the ruins were located.
