The trip is from Lewis & Clark Monument, Illinois, to Kickapoo State Park, Illinois, by way of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona
Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah
Early the next morning we drove back out east on Rte. 211 to Hwy. 191, where we turned south. We continued to Blanding, where we found a private campground with hookups. We refilled out water tank, then continued south on Hwy. 191 to Rte.95, where we turned west. Along Rte. 95 passing through Bear Ears National Monument was another beautiful drive.
We turned off onto Rte. 275 and continued west to Natural Bridges National Monument. At the visitor center we learned their campground was full. We continued on through the park, and parked several times to hike.
Ruins of Native American habitation were scattered throughout the park.
We found more blooming cactus.
After we’d hiked our fill, we drove back to Blanding and stayed at the same private campground as before. We weren’t having much luck in Utah with national and state campgrounds.
