I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Toadstools in the desert


The trailhead is 1.5 miles east of the Paria Station visitor center along Hwy 89 in Southern Utah, Grand Staircase Escalante. Have to look close for it or you’ll fly right by the parking area. (Read more...)

Hi Gaelyn, I've been to Escalante but never have seen the Toadstool area. I really liked the picture (4th, I think) of the tall toadstool against the sky backdrop. I'll enjoy your further adventures.

Those weren't the kind of toadstools I was expecting, they were even better!

No more petroglyph pics, it was mostly trail. Sorry!

In all my trips to Zions, I have never been to the toadstools. My wife and I will visit them next year.

Thanks - beautiful pictures.

Interesting! I love the toadstool against the sky and seeing the storm off in the distance.

I missed you photo last week. What beauty!

Lorac said...

Grand photos of grand toadstools. Very cool!

Janie said...

Fascinating rock formations! The storms move in quickly in that part of the world. You were wise to head back. We were once caught in quite a hailstorm down in Grand Staircase.

Amazing frames of nature you've got. So that I really have to stop hee to catch a glimpse of your place, always.

Louise said...

Another place we've been by many times but never stopped. I think it's a must now with a hike like that. I love the storm photo.

Denise said...

Fantastic photos, would love to go see those magnificent rock formations.

Hello Gaelyn,

These are very very interesting rock formations! They look like the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia region in my country but are sharper I suppose.

Have a delightful weekend!

Gian toadstools. they are great. Interesting landscape. I love it.

That old truck on my blog belongs to my daughter's Father in law. It is out on the ranch in Ritzville. I'll tell them you will be by soon. Isn't it a beauty. MB
