Blue Mountain Shadows Magazine
The Blue Mountain Shadows magazine has published history and folklore of San Juan County, Utah and the Four Corners area since 1986. Originating from Blanding, Utah, it is published June and November of each year. The BMS staff works in cooperation with San Juan County Historical Commission. We invite writers to submit articles, poetry, photographs, and profiles. On the site we only upload articles from issues that are out of print. Help that happen by ordering issues you don't have!
