Utah, Goblin Valley State Park

The unusual stone shapes in Goblin Valley are result from the weathering of sandstone.  The formation  of these mushroom-shaped rock pinnacles are called hoodoos.

 Wind and water have carved fantastic and unique goblin-like sculptures out of the rock.

 
Me, picture hunting

There are thousands of "goblins" in this 15 000 km2 park . I was surprised that we were allowed to walk around in the area. It's even three marked trails and a resting area with shades.
