Part 2 – Getting Through Utah
(May 21 – May 24, 2014)
Near Goblin State Park.
We didn’t actually go to Goblin State Park.
The Park is named for rock statues that look like Goblins all over the park, especially popular with the younger generation. When we arrived, there were no campsites available, so, as we do, we found a magnificent (do I dare say better) spot to camp just outside of the park. Therefore, we didn’t spend the fee to go inside the next day either. We enjoyed our own Goblins, and as people do in the desert, create their own entertainment by naming the rocks.
Arches National Park
Just when you think, there’s nothing new to see, geologically speaking…
And then… Canyonlands
See why I’ve fallen so far behind here. Utah is such an underrated state to visit. We could spend a year here exploring!
Around Our Dispersed Campsite
The flowers and solitude of the vast high plateau deserts are such a welcome homecoming after days of visiting scenic canyons and vistas. It brings us back to the simple details and up close comforts of whats within our reach without the drives and roads and parks and people.
For further information on the above parks, check out these wonderful websites below. Of course, we usually don’t do this, we just show up, and check them out after the visit. Probably not the best plan of attack, but it works for us…
