Departure time is 7:00 a.m. (Mountain Time), and so it is important that you attend our pre-trip orientation the night before your trip.
If you are flying, you can fly to Salt Lake City located 310 miles northwest of Blanding or 398 miles of Bluff, Utah. From there you can rent a car or take a shuttle to Blanding or Bluff, Utah.
