Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah, October 1, 2011

Our plans after leaving Moab, Utah on our 2011 trip were to head further south in Utah and check out Natural Bridges National Monument.  We didn’t try to make reservations, figuring we probably wouldn’t need them.

It turned out that we weren’t able to camp at Natural Bridges, not only because all of the sites were full, but also because our little motorhome and the CRV we tow would take up too much space – the campsites at Natural Bridges are very small.  However, the ranger at the desk was able to direct us to a piece of BLM land up the road just a few miles, where we would be able to set up camp.

We found a nice little spot between some junipers that we could back the motorhome into.  We stayed two nights. Several other campers were there.  The small car with the teardrop camper pulled in the second afternoon and were getting ready to leave the next day, as were we.

At Natural Bridges, we took what ended up being one our favorite hikes of the trip – the Trail to Sipapu Natural Bridge.
