Hite had cold drinks and gasoline - next stop top of Blue Notch. If you look close through the haze you can see Good Hope Bay on Lake Powell.
Looking back at the country we had just travelled
Making our way back toward Blanding picking pinyon nuts and enjoying the day we decided to take one more "short cut".
The old road out of Comb Wash.
This was the way we went to Lake Powell when I was a kid. Still a bit of a kid but the road has deteriorated over the years since the cut was shot through the ridge and the road paved.
It was a great day that satisfied my curiosity about the back way to Hite, the motorized access in Dark Canyon and we saw some amazing places - places we'll go back and explore.
Last shot of the day from the top of Comb Ridge on the old road looking back at the rest of the ridge trailing away into the haze.
