We left Blanding and headed down UT 95, also known as the Trail of the Ancients. Our first stop was Butler Wash Ruins. It was a half mile walk to the overlook of the ruins. Binoculars come in handy because the ruins are a hundred or so yards away.
A short walk back to the rig and we’re off to see Comb Ridge which is a linear north to south trending monocline, nearly 80 miles long. It starts in Utah and runs into northern Arizona. Just a big huge wall of different layers.
The next stop was a very well preserved Anasazi (which means ancient ones) village. The ruins were just off a parking lot so very easy walking. Theses are the Mule Canyon ruins. Several small rooms in a long L shape with a separate round kiva. There was also a well close by.
Now it is off to Natural Bridge National Monument and our next adventure.
