Sunday morning we were up and ready to go by 9:00 AM, early for us. After a quick stop at the Wahweap Resort for a coffee-to-go (it’s a Starbucks!) we were on the road, headed for the small town of Bluff, UT. There are many places we want to explore in that part of Utah, including some ancient Pueblo cliff dwellings.
As we drove north on Rte. 163 across Arizona and into Utah, we went through an area known as Monument Valley. The area is a flat, dry desert surrounded by soaring rock formations
As we approached the tiny community of Mexican Hat, we crossed the San Juan River.
The picture below shows where Mexican Hat got its name.
Interesting natural formations surrounded us as we drove further north.
After a drive of about 175 miles, we arrived in Bluff and quickly settled into our site at Cadillac RV Park. This is a pretty basic park, a gravel lot with hook-ups. But it has just what we need: good power, water, sewer, a level site, and decent WiFi.
In a blog we follow, RV Sue recently visited Bluff and highly recommended the Twin Rocks Cafe, so we decided to give it a try for dinner. We’re glad we did, as the Indian Fry Bread Pizza was excellent!
We’ll be settled here in Bluff, along with the 32o residents of the town, for about eight days as we explore the area. More on those adventures later . . .
