Last weekend we took a mini-vacation down to the BLM land near Goblin Valley State Park. Isn't it amazing how a weekend can become an adventure when it's spent in the dirt?!?
We found a spectacular campsite and spent the remainder of the weekend romping, climbing, playing in the sand, and thoroughly enjoying the beauty of the Utah desert.
|The van is getting a little full with 6 people and a dog - it may be time for an auxiliary tent or little sleeping trailer next year!|
|The desert was wildly, beautifully in bloom and we were so lucky to arrive during one of the few days when the cacti are flowering.|
Yes, the kids enjoyed the roller coaster dirt road ride a lot.
|A-hiking we go|
|The slot canyon was great fun for all|
|Taking a little break from the sun|
|And home again we go!|
|See those little specs on top of the very tall goblin on the left? Yeah, those are my boys.|
