Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy ( Landscape)

This week’s DP photo challenge is Creepy.

The hoodoos or goblins in the Goblin Valley State Park offers one of the most creepy landscapes.CIMG4388

Here is an introduction from the Wikipedia:

Goblin Valley State Park is a state park of Utah, USA.

Its eminent feature is its thousands of hoodoos and hoodoo rocks, referred to locally as “goblins”, which are formations of mushroom-shaped rock pinnacles, some as high as several meters. The distinct shape of these rocks comes from an erosion-resistant layer of rock atop softer sandstones.CIMG4375

The park lies within the San Rafael Desert southeast of the east limb of theSan Rafael Swell and north of the Henry Mountains. Utah State Route 24 passes about four miles east of the park. Hanksville lies 12 miles to the south.CIMG4409

The photos were taken by my wife.

  1. A few years back we got close to the Goblins. We stopped at Kodachrome State Park (UT) an hour or so south of Capitol Reif. Another trip, we’ll walk among them.

  2. This blog is so well built up, like Arnold’s Schwarzenegger (can’t believe I wrote it without making mistake) musculature 30 years ago. Greetings MIchael and keep posting 😉

  3. Interesting. Of course that’s erosion working on different layers and leaving the “hat”. In French they’re called “cheminée des fées” Fairies’ chimneys. One can imagine the little fairy home underground below the chimney. 🙂
