Blanding, UT – Anasazi Indian Ruins

Image Pending

Ancient Pueblo People, or Ancestral Puebloans is a preferred term for the cultural group of people often known as Anasazi who are the ancestors of the modern Pueblo peoples. The ancestral Puebloans were a prehistoric Native American civilization centered around the present-day Four Corners area of the Southwest United States.

The civilization is perhaps best-known for the jacal, adobe and sandstone dwellings that they built along cliff walls, particularly during the Pueblo II and Pueblo III eras. An excellent location to appreciate the history of these people can be found at this un-named location of classic ruins

County roads leading to this location is partially gravel and sandstone, this drive may not be a good idea in wet weather.    Although a 4WD is not necessary but opens up many possibilities for further exploration of the area.


This un-named location is  littered with old anasazi Indian ruins, cliff dwellings and petroglyphs just about everywhere you look.
The GPS coordinates supplied will find you near an old cliff dwelling and close to a cliff face with lots of writing on it.
Remember: take nothing but pictures!
“Just a reminder that the cliff dwellings, petroglyphs and any
artifacts in the area are federally protected. Tampering with them, or removing any artifacts can net you a hefty fine and jail time”
