Not many services yesterday and none today along the 95. Lunch? Tuna and free condiment burritos.

Spearmint I picked in Boulder, still looks fresh to me.

Right before Natural Bridges National Monument this truck stopped to give us soda, Oreos, salami, lemonade mix, and Tecates. Thanks Taylor from Moab!

Finally up on Salvation Knoll. We thought this was the end.

Neat pass through the rocks. Is that the end?

A series of short, really steep uphills brought us up to Blanding, a little farm town about 6,000ft above sea level. We camped at the Kampark RV park behind a Shell gas station. Kind of spooky but the showers were really clean. There is a big Clark’s Market across the street for groceries. Dinner of pasta and salad hit the spot.
