Made up of our distinct cultures, Ute, Navajo, European pioneer and Spanish have left their history in Blanding, which sits on White Mesa near Blue Mountain. Anasazi occupation occurred here as early as 600 AD. Utes and an occasional Navajo camped in this area because of the water from local springs and seeps. Navajos called the location "Sagebrush," because of the plant's prolific growth that amidst the pinyon and junipers forest at the base of the mountain.
"As a child and in my youth my family spent many family vacations here. Love this town filled to the brim with loving people & memory making moments. The surrounding canyons are simply breathtaking!"
