Special Features:Park is the site of intricately eroded rock formations that create an atmosphere of unearthly scenery. Exposed cliffs reveal parallel layers of rock bared by erosion. Because of the uneven hardness of sandstone, some areas resist erosion better than others. The softer material is removed by wind and water, leaving thousands of unique geologic "goblins."
