This morning we spent meandering around the weird and wonderful rock formations of Goblin Valley. This place has been on my bucket list for a long time. We got up really early to beat the rain and were happy we did as it has been pouring on and off all afternoon. I’ll let the pictures tell the story, and if you think it’s a long story you should know I took over 240 that I whittled down to these dozen or so!

Just look at all those little goblins!

There are no trails in the three valleys, you just go out and wander and explore which was really fun.

Another wild gnome!

It was funny to look at the GPS map from Scott’s Fitbit and see our five mile exploration through the valleys. Lots of dead ends where the valley walls got too steep and we had to double back to find alternate routes.


And a few shots from our last hike before leaving Escalante-Grand Staircase National Monument the other day. It was a “wet hike” that followed and criss crossed back and forth across the Escalante River. Accessory of the day: neoprene socks to keep our feet warm!

Escalate Natural Bridge was the endpoint of our hike, although the river trail went over 100 miles!
