Butler Wash to Blanding

After a short US 191 connector from Snow Flats rd, we turn off heading north onto Butler Wash Rd.

Starts out hard packed, but then gets soft again. Not as deep as the last section on Snow Flats.

As we move north and closer to our afternoon gas/lunch stop in Blanding, we notice the clouds beginning to thicken over the peaks in the Manti-la Sal NF.

At the Blanding turnoff, W Water rd, we stop and discuss whether or not to keep going on route or stop. We decide to drive into Blanding for gas, food and a quick break. The sand and heat were taking a toll. Any temp over 70f is hot for person from the NW.

After the gas stop, we head over to the Homestead Steak house for a bite. Then drive over to the Blanding City Park to kickoff our boots for a spell under a shade tree and get a pulse on the town. And let lunch settle. Ah, the cool green grass.

Next up Manti-la Sal (where the clouds were forming)
