Just when you think you can't be surprised by another rock formation another one shows up right
around the corner. Comb Ridge is great to see.

In this land of sweeping mesas, massive buttes and towering rock sires, Comb Ridge is something else again. Basically it is a rock wall, or expressed more correctly, a monocline – a big step in the earth’s surface. It stretches north-south for almost 80 miles from the Abajo Mountains north of Blanding all the way to Laguna Creek east of Kayenta in Arizona. In 1976 it was designated a National Natural Landmark.
It seems at its most impressive between Bluff and Blanding, roughly, with 191 and 95 cutting through it. When you are approaching it from the bottom end you feel the way an ant might feel when it approaches your garden wall. In stunning colors, this wall rises above green Comb Wash down below. From the top end you approach an undulating edge till you see the road cuts through it and then dips to the bottom far below. The colors in the morning are absolutely stunning; natural rock art in psychedelic pastels: this is a very special sight.
The first time you approach it you simply have to go WOW!!! and your jaw drops.

I've camped out along comb ridge and also stayed at the Recapture Lodge in Bluff while exploring this area. Comb Ridge is a great hike with some Anasazi ruins in the side canyons.

How do you beat that? 5K year old rock art, archeological treasures, spectacular scenery, guaranteed solitude, slot canyons, geocaches, geologic wonders, river, etc., etc.

Yes, I know the sun is setting behind me! But the light cast on Comb Ridge is gorgeous, and should you be so lucky as to have a full moon rising in the east, you will be amazed.... Note that the road dips down and cuts through Comb Ridge, so if you find a spot to pull off safely while still elevated, that's the best photo op (at least when I was there).
