Drove this Byway in 1994, and again in 2005. There are no towns between Blanding and Hanksville. You pass by several Indian Ruins, as well as Natural Bridges NM, and the upper end of Lake Powell. It is very scenic, and there's not a lot of traffic. Some of the grades are fairly steep; if you're pulling a 5th wheel, you will know it.
