Most excellent views of a time long ago. Interesting place to take a day just walking around with camera in hand.

Wow! I've never seen anything like that. They look like sand sculptures.

Thank you AzShooter. We will return, probably next spring, and spend time here...the geology is spectacular and I image some very strange images can be captured in good light.

Those formations are really neat. I'd probably have run out of memory there!

Almost ran out of memory...still haven't had a chance, with our remodel going on, to even look at all the images...leaving this am for a funeral in so. California so it may be a while.

On the way home from Rocky Mountain N.P., we did a quick side trip to Fantasy Canyon (FC). FC is located about 45 miles south of Vernal, Utah is approximately 10 acres in size and is administered by the BLM. This site is remote in the sense that it is in the middle of nowhere and amenities are a vault pit toilet and vague trails. There is good roadside signage directions to FC and only the last 5 miles are on dirt roads. Also, there is a BLM office in Vernal where a FC brochure and directions are available. I would only recommend going here in good weather as I can image a muddy mess otherwise.

See Wikipedia for more information and history on FC...The rocks are composed of quartzose sandstone and were deposited during the Eocene Epoch...we all remember those days, right!! These photos were taken late afternoon after a passing storm to the west. The stand-alone "whodo's" in the photo are 6-8 feet tall! My camera battery died right at sunset or I would have stayed longer.

Interesting and unique scenes, jederick, and very nice shots...enjoyed the tour!
