Blanding is a city in Utah's Canyon Country.

Get in

By air:

The nearest airport would be Blanding Municipal Airport (BDG), though commercial flights do not fly to there. The closest commercial airport would be Canyonlands Field near Moab, UT, which is approximately 93 miles north of Blanding. Services are limited to Denver, Colorado and Prescott, Arizona, served by the Great Lake Airlines. The next possible airport would be Durango-La Plata County Airport (DRO), which is 138 miles to the east and has better connections with the rest of the nation via stopovers in Denver, Phoenix or Dallas.

By car:

South from Salt Lake City/Moab/Monticello - Take UT Rt. 191 South to Blanding. Rt. 191 is also known as Rt 6 between SLC and I-70. From Grand Junction, take I-70 west to Rt. 191 exit and go south.

North from Arizona - Rt. 191 leads north to Blanding.

West from Cortez, Colorado - Rt. 491 leads west to Rt. 191, where one would proceed south to Blanding.
