Brought To You From Sand Island

Sand Island Campground (BLM) in Bluff, Utah—and we have Verizon signal with the booster and antenna—amazing considering we are down next to the river with high ridges all around us!  The guys had us leaving North Ranch before 6am this morning—dang it!!  But we made tracks all day, 361 miles, arriving in Bluff about 2:30pm.  Amazingly we found two large campsites open on a Friday afternoon—our site is huge and we wanted the trailer in the sun for best use of the solar panels plus we wanted access to the back door so we could unload and load the ATVs.  Larry has offered to pull the trailer with his truck if we want to travel to a trailhead for ATV riding so the front of the trailer had to be accessible too.  Logistics, logistics--we are serving as Larry and Geri’s garage, too!



The cliff above our campsite is covered with petroglyphs--




DSCN0792The San Juan River is flowing—it’s nice to see water again!

It’s good to be traveling and it’s fun to travel with Larry and Geri again.  Cathy and Mike were to have joined us on Sunday in Moab but have had family issues which require their presence in Washington—we wish them all the best as they travel home! 

Larry grilled chicken tonight, Geri pan fried some potatoes and onions and with a salad we dined like kings—life is good!


  1. We stayed in that campground and I loved watching the river roll on by.

  2. Glad you made it safely to Bluff! Sand Island is a great place...enjoy:)

  3. We went to see the petroglyphs at Sand Island a couple of years ago and thought the BLM campground looked like a good place to stay. Looks like you have a gorgeous site -- and with Verizon, even!

  4. I remember driving through Sand Island a month ago thinking how nice it was with the cliffs on one side a & the river on the other side. All spots except for a couple small one's were taken so we kept on going.

  5. You're in one of our favorite parts of the country. And one of our favorite campgrounds. Have fun.

  6. Love that site. Left just 2 weeks ago, kept registering for another night, and enjoyed the oddly strong cellular signal. Try the coffee shop on the west end of town. Great wifi and delicious menu!

  7. Wow petroglyphs and water right at the camp is very cool! Bet you're loving all that free electricity along with your cell service :-) Have a great time!!
