Utah is an amazing place, and far more varied than most people give it credit for.
We started our Utah experience at the Goosenecks State Park on our way up from Arizona. An amazing place with sheer views down at the Colorado River. A bit windy and pricey for no hookups, but a must-see.
From Goosenecks you can visit Valley of the Gods, a smaller version of Monument Valley.
Bears Ears, Butler Wash, the Abajo Mountains – there is so much to see here. From the dry, dusty areas around Moab to the lush green and high peaks of the mountains – Utah should be on everyone’s list!
Home Sweet Home
Camped right on the rim of the canyon at Goosenecks State Park. 5 feet left of that bag chair is a vertical drop down to the canyon.
The reason that this state park is called Goosenecks.

A Hand Reaching Up
This formation looks like a hand reaching up out of the ground.
Curious cows come up to check us out as we roll out of Goosenecks State Park.
What A Dump
Home – sitting in a gravel pit west of Blanding Utah with the Abajo Mountains in the background. Not too bad for free!
Black or Red
The Jeep maintained a reddish tint for many weeks throughout Southeast Utah. Stopping for a break here with a view of Bears Ears National Monument in the background.
I always carry a headlamp in my backpack just in case I need to do a little exploring!
Home With A View
Ancient Puebloan ruins in a massive cave in the North Butler Wash area.
Yet another "not mother-approved" moment!
It looks like this road is closed unless you have a snowmobile!
Mountains by Moonlight
The Abajo Mountains glow white under a full moon.
