Goose Neck State Park

Travel

Although the scenery is pretty here I am so glad we did not decide to camp here a night or two.  The choice to stop at the Natural Bridge National Monument instead worked out so much better.

This is what you see at this park:

This is one part of the camping area

This is the other side!

The view – this is it – overall you see 4 parts of the river flowing around the center “goose necks” you have to stand on the edge to see the view.  It was a hazy day – the color is not well looking out.

Now I did get a laugh at the bathroom – the wind was blowing a bit and somehow coming into the bathroom – the trash can was empty and the wind was blowing the bag straight up Smile anyhow clean facilities!!   Almost all of the outdoor bathrooms were exceptionally clean and as close to odor free as possible in the parks – I was surprised. Almost all had hand sanitizers by the door.

Some wonderful rock color on the way back to the campground

This is the rock that gave the town of “Mexican Hat” it’s name.

That was it for our stay in the Natural Bridge Monument area.  I have pre-scheduled posts and we are now in Arizona.

    Yes, I can see why that particular camp ground did not appeal.
    On the other hand, the goose necks were quite stunning. I am always amazed at the power of wind and water in changing the landscape.
    And isn’t it funny where we find amusements – even in the bathroom!

    That camp ground does look pretty bare.

    That is a pretty depressing campground… if the wind was that high in the bathrooms, you wouldn’t have to worry if they were out of toilet paper, would you? No drip dry… air dry!
