Picture of the Day

"Galaxy Quest" anyone? Goblin Valley State Park (central Utah) is one of those little-known out-of-the-way places that is well worth a visit. The nearest town of any size (and that is not saying much) is Green River. There is a pleasant campground, even with showers, and lots of nooks and crannies to explore. The Goblins occur in a member of the Entrada Sandstone, and result from differential erosion on tidal flat mud and sandstone, with the odd shapes of the goblins (which are often called hoodoos) demarcated by vertical joints.

Coolest hoodoos I've ever seen! I am glad to learn of this place.
