This wild and mostly-uninhabited area is very worth exploring for those who like solitude and vast landscapes that are not very hospitable to us humans.
Please check out my Outdoor Project pages for these adventures!
Little Wildhorse Canyon
|Hiking up the wash towards Little Wildhorse Canyon
|A classic Utah slot canyon
|Even Tucker liked this hike!
|The rock walls were so interesting and beautiful
|Very narrow in places
|Overlooking Goblin Valley
|The "goblins" are highly-weathered sandstone formations that cover a 1/2-mile-long valley
|These goblins greeted us on our drive in
|The long and lonely road to Horseshoe Canyon
|Dinosaur footprint on the trail down to Horseshoe Canyon
|This was a remote and beautiful place
|One of the rock art panels in the canyon, thought to be 2,000 to 3,000 years old
|Rock art from the Fremont people
|Aliens or gods? Who knows?
|Uninhabited as far as the eye can see
|A very clear day looking east to the LaSal Mountains
|After the long hike, we still had to drive 23 miles back to the highway
