Oh, you're makin' me hungry for red rock country! Such beautiful scenery, and the red rocks against the blue sky creates such a heavenly contrast...

Bom said...

Wow, wow, wow and wow! Those rock formations are fascinating. You did a great job capturing them against the sky with the cloud formations. Lots of contrast between your subject and background.

Hi, Snowcatcher!
It was a blissful break from our cold rainy weather. :))

Kate/High Altitude Gardening said...

Thx, Bom -- Your flower photos were quite stunning! :))

Hi, Beth;
Lucky you ~ spending a little time in NYC. I'm long overdue for a trip.

Happy WW everyone!

OMG! That is beautiful country. Must schedule a field trip!

Amazing! I have not been to Utah, but I saw the rock formations in New Mexico. There something very special about them...regal and profound.

Kate/High Altitude Gardening said...

I would happily give you a guided tour, Tufa!

Hi, Sage;
I'm on my way down to New Mexico in just a couple weeks. Am looking forward to some backcountry fun.

Gorgeous country...another place I will visit some day. Happy WW!

Head Ant said...

I wish I could go there!

Dianne - Bunny Trails said...

Beautiful! Looks like a lovely day. I wondered if that was southern Utah.

Dianne - Bunny Trails said...

Okay, so I feel like a dork saying I wondered if that was Utah. After all, you apparently LIVE in Utah. Ha! Ha! For whatever reason, I thought you lived here in Colorado. I guess it was the "High Altitude" title. Pay no attention to the silly girl from Colorado.

Wendy said...

wow, pretty cool!!

Lona said...

Rock formations are so amazing. I wonder how those three stood there all by themselves. Such pretty red rocks.

Dawn said...

I've never heard of Goblin Valley before, but it looks magical, in its own way. The red of the rocks is hauntingly beautiful. I would love to see the area at sunrise (or sunset I suppose). Thank you for stopping by my blog as well; I enjoyed reading your comment and appreciated your visit. Happy WW!

How awesome, Kate! Have fun :)

Liz said...

Did you stop by Little Wild Horse Canyon as well? I grew up going there, it's a fun place.

Diana said...

Love all the rock formations! Years ago I was fortunate enough to visit Moab... all of that is simply spectacular.

Janie said...

The rock goblins are great! And your dog seems right at home there.

tracy said...

sweetbay said...

Bad Dog looks like he enjoyed Goblin Valley too. I hadn't heard of Goblin Valley before ~ love the name and such unique rock formations!

Melanie said...

These are wonderful photos Kate. What a great place to visit. I've added it too my list of must see places.

Mariana said...

Awesome pictures!! Absolutely lovely shapes!

Fantastic. That would go on my list to visit but it's already impossibly long. Thank goodness for the internet.
