Goblin Valley State Park is an amazing spot inhabited by strange and unique rock structures, carved by the erosive powers of the wind and water. Balanced rocks, spires, pedestals, mushroomed-shaped rocks, all can be found, as well as many more shapes undefined. The valley contains thousands of these rocks, some only a few feet high. A must see if you are in southern Utah. After spending an hour or so scrambling around the figures, I followed the Estrada Canyon Trail for an hour or so. It is a small, narrow canyon, with the cliffs and trail made of red earth. An interesting hike, with the structures adorning the trail as you pass. View the pictures to get a good sense of these remarkable figures. The park is aptly named.
