Amazing Getaway to Southeastern Utah!

Amazing Getaway to Southeastern Utah!
To plot your visit in Southeastern Utah, Blanding Ut Hotels will locate you involved with 40 National and State Parks, Monuments, Ruin Sites and Petroglyph Sites!
A wonderful itinerary for your stay in Blanding Ut Hotels is on day 1, visit Arches National Park and check out the Delicate Arch. But if your day ends early you might include a hike even to Corona Arch. Wilson Arch is a popular stop along the highway for a little 20-minute stop.
On Day 2 you likely will most definitely consider visiting Natural Bridges National Monument. You will discover 3 major natural bridges, along with the second largest bridge across the world. You can observe each bridge from it’s overlook site, you can hike to each bridge, or you can do the Grand Hike and do all three bridges. Natural Bridges and Hovenweep also are listed in the very best 15 sites in the world for Night Sky Viewing.
On day 3, from Blanding Ut Hotels, you can expect to most assuredly take a motor car journey to see the Grande Loop. You can expect to start out from Blanding Ut Hotels around the Blanding Utah area and travel west on Highway 95, stopping at Mule Canyon Ruins Site. For those who haven’t yet seen Natural Bridges you should drive thru there and stop at every one of the 3 overlooks. You could then continue south on Highway 261 stopping and doing a short hike at Muley Point Overlook, where you can see monuments in 4 states, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah. You could then continue south on 261 across the Moki Dugway, an incredible pass going from the upper mesa to the lower mesa, a drop of over 1100 feet. As you make it to the bottom, you have the option of traveling thru the Valley of the Gods or Goosenecks State Park. Each are great and unique. As you leave Goosenecks, you will observe Mexican Hat Rock, a mega ton rock balanced on its perch on another rock pillar, and is in the shape of a Mexican Sombrero. Your next stop will be in Bluff at Bluff Fort. The earlier Mormon Pioneers braved the fierce and rugged terrain of Canyonlands area to settle the main mission here. You can see a number of the re-enactment videos and their first settlement here at Bluff Fort.
You ought to now be ready for a delicious dinner; and we also invite you to join us for dinner at the Twin Rocks Cafe in Bluff, a
nd I personally recommend the Sheepherders Sandwich with extra, extra honey mustard sauce for both the salad and the sandwich, and save room for their delicious caramel fried ice cream. Then, you’ll come back to Blanding Ut Hotels for the best night of your stay in your private cabin with the trees with a full kitchen and all the amenities you could possibly want. Let us know if you are bringing a pet, as some of our cabins are for non-pet travelers. We also provide horse stables for people traveling with horses.
