On Friday, October 21st we headed out for our 2nd trip to Goblin Valley State Park. Our last trip was back in October of 2009 (see Goblin Valley:2009) It was fun to look back and compare. Everyone had long hair, including David! We were also fostering a Golden named Gus :) My how my kiddos have grown!
Snowy could hardly contain himself....
I had a little sock monkey project to keep me busy :)
We got a late start so when we got to the BLM land to camp, it was full! Then we remembered...last time we left on a Saturday and camped through till Monday. In Utah, everyone leaves on Saturday to go home so the place is empty :) Oh, well. We managed to find a spot even though the rough BLM roads were not fun in the RV!
Willow took right to climbing trees, building up the fire pit and setting up camp :)
|Snowy love :)|
|Mara the photographer|
Cincinnati chili and smores abound...
The next day...gotta have my tea...pancakes and bacon on the menu and then off to explore the park!
But first, some playing around with the pups...

|poor tired Snowy..he is not as much of a hiker as the Borders...|
|Snowy is starting to turn brown :)|
|Junie looking cool...|
|Me and my love :)|
|Josh helping us all down...|
|who is that? It is "Super Rock Climbing Girl and her sidekick Stones" :)|
|this is where is got fun...|
After the hike we headed back to camp to play and eat dinner....My camera battery died so I don't have any great pictures of that night :) We went back into the park and played tag in the goblins under the stars and then had smores around the fire... The next day more playing on the cliffs...
|Of course Willow got her Junior Ranger...again ;)|
Then we drove into Hanksville for lunch at Blondies and to go into the Hollow Mountain Gas station...
