We’re now settled in the small town of Blanding, which is about 100 miles south of Moab and well situated
for exploring some of the thousands of ruins that dot the canyons in this region. After getting settled, we decided to further test our ruin finding skills and see if we could find a 2 story ruin located about 10 miles from town, called Tower House Ruin.
This is a great ruin because it is 2 stories and also has an adjacent building with intact roofing timbers, which is amazing considering they are almost 800 years old.
Hey Jeanie! We’re really enjoying following your trip on Google Maps. What books are you using to find these well hidden ruins? Will
Hi Will, I spent many hours online trying to find particulars like GPS waypoints or perhaps good route descriptions to selected ruins. People like to describe them but not give exact directions on how to get there. I also found a great book by Michael Kelsey called “Non-Technical Canyon Hiking Guide to the Colorado Plateau”. It has great descriptions but no GPS data.
