(nr Kanab UT)
As I went through Kanab, I stopped to get gas, and had lunch at Big Al’s Burgers. The “Outlaw” was a bacon-cheeseburger with a side of fries and fry-sauce; I treated myself to a soft-serve vanilla cone for desert.
Headed north out of town and US-89 soon turned to gravel for several miles as it was being repaired and repaved. About 7 miles out, I turned onto a side road and went toward my destination. Along the way was the small Ponderosa Grove CG-BLM with a few nice sites in the pine trees.
The Coral Pink Sand Dunes are a favorite playground of the OHV set. And, there is a state park with a campground and trails to explore without the dune buggies. It wasn’t necessary to go into the state park, as there were several pull-offs where you could walk in to see the dunes. I stopped at a few to take photos of the sand dunes.
After returning to US-89, I found a free boondock camp on BLM land just off the highway and facing the Elkheart Cliffs. A nice view on a knoll, and with internet too. I stayed for two days.
