Spring Break Part 2 - Goblin Valley and Hiking

We headed to Goblin Valley the next morning after everyone slept in and ate some breakfast. The park was about 25 minutes away from our hotel. It was simply amazing, even at first glance. You're in the middle of nowhere and all of a sudden, there are a million of these Goblin statues everywhere. It was beautiful. It was windy. It was way fun! 

We spent the next couple hours running, climbing and searching in the valley. The boys even found a couple of geocaches! 

Next we headed to Little Wild Horse to hike through the slot canyon. We stopped under a huge rock and ate our lunch, leaving "no trace behind". The boys had a blast. Running, climbing, jumping and exploring every nook and cranny. 

One of my favorite things to see was this huge rock with thousands of other rocks on top of it. We all found a rock, made a wish and added ours to the pile.  So cool!

It was fun and so beautiful. We live so close to so many amazing sites that nature has produced over long periods of time. Again, I am so thankful be so close and to experience nature at its finest with the ones I love the most.
