Everything around Moab was far more busy than I'd expected. Any campground I'd wanted to stay in was fully booked. Obviously a new plan was needed.
Some time was spent consulting the map and my several hiking books to find some place interesting that I hadn't been to before.
Eventually I settled on Goblin Valley state park. After a quiet night out on the desert, I visited the park first thing in the morning. No surprise, their little campground was full but I was able to spend a few hours wandering around the goblins. It was fun for awhile. It's a place that kids would really enjoy.
