Fantasy Canyon, UT

While Bryce Canyon is the best known for its unique formation, Fantasy Canyon has to have the strangest formations of all.  It is much smaller (only several acres) and it is very remote, so it only sees some 5,000 visitors a year.  It isn’t that its so far (only about 45 miles from Vernal, UT) but the last part of the drive is on oil company roads… rough and dusty.  But we found the trip worth the effort.  Take a look:

Most all the formations are named; this one is "Flying Witch"

Strange formations all along the 1/2 mile hike

A different angle shows different details

These formations are quite fragile and won't last forever

Deeper in the canyon reveals ever more formations

And more stuff....

I think this was "Rabbit Ears"
