Toadstools – Close-ups

It was about a mile walk back to the area where the toadstool formations were located.  Much of the “path” was actually a dry, sandy creek bed which probably fills rapidly with water when the monsoon rains hit.  It had rained overnight west of Kanab but evidently not over this direction, as the creek bed was dry.

Once you get back to where the toadstool formations are located you are in an eerie, moon-like landscape with many large grayish-white rocks with wind-swept swirl patterns and many rounded nooks and crannies.  The “path” was not as obvious back here and I found myself in many dead-ends.

Nearby are many reddish-brown formations, such as the main attraction which is brown but sits high atop a white base.

And behind the main attraction are some smaller, standalone formations.

I believe this one fell over.
