In my post about Cadillac Mountain in Acadia NP, I ask “where are the goblins?” It turns out they’re in Utah. The Utah goblins are natural formations of clay-like sandstone, each 10 or more feet high, and the valley is a leafless place with nothing else. The park doesn’t really have trails. You just wander around until you’re tired or contract sunstroke.

The valley is much larger than shown here. See people for scale.

There are a variety of shapes here, but there’s a definite mushroom tendency.

Or maybe goblins wearing hats.

Anyway, a definitely different place. You might say “out of this world”, and the makers of the movie Galaxy Quest thought so too.

I don’t own this picture. Funny movie, and they’re considering a sequel.
