Spring break of our freshmen year of college we went on a camping trip to Goblin Valley with a group of high school friends. March is the perfect time to travel to Southern Utah. You beat the summer heat and crowds but it is warm enough to camp. And in my opinion 50 degrees is just about perfect for a hike.
Goblin Valley is a very unique place. The area outside of the valley is barren and desolate but the valley itself is full of crazy rock formations.
Apparently this was during that time of life where we thought we were incredibly artsy.
This is one of my favorite pictures of us together. This was just the beginning of many, many adventures together.
If you are ever in the Goblin Valley area, be sure to hike through Little Wild Horse Canyon. The hike takes you through a slot canyon and can be hiked without any special equipment or talent. You may run into some water depending on time of year.
On our drive home we stopped in Capitol Reef National Park and hiked to Hickman Bridge and the overlook a few miles past the bridge.
