Goblin Valley State Park, Utah...



It took until the late 1920's for White Folk to discover the earth-tone hoodoos of what would become Goblin State Park.
One of the three cowboys who saw it from a mile away opined, "I reckon it ain't no Bryce Canyon, but it's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick." 
He was right. Unless you have a thing for the color of mud, Goblin Valley is a one and done destination. However, the campground features such luxury amenities as flush toilets and hot showers. For a guy like me (there is no running water in my mobile Man-Cave), this is HUGE. It's almost as WOW as a 5-star Hilton without the fluffy white towels and chocolates under the pillows. 

Goblin Valley lies in the midst of a lot of cool places to explore. Use it as a base camp like I did. There's heaps to see and experience in the San Raphael Swell.


Be swell out there,

BTW: GV State Park had its 15 minutes of fame in 2013 when a Boy Scout Leader toppled a goblin and placed the "Incredibly Stupid Video" on You Tube. It's always wonderful when a Nemesis of Nature Nitwit provides the evidence for their own prosecution. 

We can only hope these imbeciles cease breeding.
