Utah - Fantasy Canyon

"Sunset on Mars"

"Big Nose"

"The Owl"

"Penguin with starfish"

Fantasy Canyon is located about 35 miles south of Vernal. It's a pretty small area in the middle of nowhere. The sandstone is of a perfectly boring grey color during the day. It only comes to life when the sun is near the horizon.
There is an almost endless number of "inhabitants" in this canyon, which is only limited by your fantasy.

The place was discovered in 1909 and many of the features have certainly been around for hundreds and thousands of years. The most famous one was the "Teapot". It was destroyed in September 2006. By a passing storm or by a mindless idiot.
