Scenes from Little Egypt

Little Egypt Geologic Site, Utah

By RON LIZZI - GoOutsideBook.com

 

 

Here are seven photos taken on an April morning at Little Egypt Geologic Site, about 20 miles south of Hanksville, Utah.

 

The parking area may be reached via UT 95, followed by about 1.5 miles of dirt road, which may be impassible when wet. The parking area is at the northern end of the site, with the rock formations extending approximately a mile to the south. There are no facilities nor trails at this site.

 

The rock formations are somewhat reminiscent of those at Goblin Valley State Park, 35 miles to the north, which has many more, in a variety of shapes and sizes, all being solid brown.

 

With cliffs immediately to the west, these rocks receive sun from sunrise to mid-afternoon, but they generally become shaded in the late afternoon.
