"Highway 95 Ascending Comb Ridge"
September 2012, Southern Utah
Southern Utah is well known for its amazing assortment of national parks. It seems like the moment you leave one park you enter straight into another. Less well known is the fact that Southern Utah also lays claim to three of the United States premier highways. Highways 12, 24 and 95 are the types of roads that fashion memories for a lifetime. They all probe deep into the Utah wilderness, mesmerizing drivers with undulating curves and unmatched scenery.
In this image looking east Highway 95 can be seen ascending Comb Ridge in the heart of Cedar Mesa. The small town of Blanding, my base for this incredible trip, lies another 15 miles distant beyond the ridge.
