Goblin Valley

Second stop on the nostalgia tour was Goblin Valley State Park in Utah. In 1969 there were no facilities here at the end of the graded dirt road. The facilities now include a visitor center, an entrance station ($20 per car and worth it), and a paved road. Part of the movie Galaxy Quest* was filmed here. They paid for paving the road.


*Galaxy Quest is widely regarded as the second-best Start Trek movie even though it is not really in the Star Trek continuum (but it kind of is).
