We are now in Moab, Utah -- only about 250 miles from Salt Lake City in case Ashley and Shad's little boy decides to make an earlier-than-expected-arrival. But to catch up on our travels: after the Cottonwood Campground in Chinle, AZ, our next stop was Sand Island Campground in Bluff, Utah. Managed by the BLM, it has 27 campsites and a boat launch where people rafting the San Juan River put in or take a break. Cost to camp is $10 a night, but because Jim has a “senior pass” (or as we call it, his “old guys' card") we paid $5. The old guys' card also gets us into all national monuments for free. This card costs $10, is available to anyone 62 to older, and has to be one of the best deals around.
