I love Utah for the crazy rock formations. They are so numerous that they become almost commonplace while we are there. Here is one that always catches my eye during our visits. The mushroom-like formation is as tall as a two story house!
The spikes on top of this formation are hundreds of feet high. The cracked earth truly looks like a classic desert.
The scale of the rock formations is mind boggling.
On the last day that we were in that particular spot, my favorite trail was losing sunlight at about 1 PM because it sits on the north side of a spiky and towering rock formation. It was chilly when the trail was shaded.
Although it was chilly in the desert shade, it was astronomically colder at home than in the desert. At the moment that I snapped the previous photo, my trail cam near home captured this one. It was 10°F where those elk were foraging.
