The main road south through Goblin State Park dead ends at Observation Point. From here you have a panoramic view into a “valley of goblins” and, time permitting, can hike down to walk among them. Unfortunately our visit was too brief to meet any goblins face to face so, admiring them from afar, we vowed to take them up on their hospitality next visit.

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

  • It’s a fascinating place Lynn. Sadly our time was limited so couldn’t hike through the Valley. Looked great from the road and viewpoints but would have been fun to go toe-to-toe with these whimsical rock characters. ;-)
