I'm as Fat as a Canyon

This weekend Robyn and I took an adventure to Goblin Valley with some friends.  We slept out under the stars and braved the sun, the sand, the gnats and even goblins.  Of course, I wasn't sure how to prepare for goblins.  I didn't know if I should bring garlic, wooden stakes or silver bullets.  But, despite that, we survived.  I just thought I'd share a few of our experiences with you.

We had a picnic sitting above the valley.  It's crawling with goblins.  Are you afraid?

We chilled with some locals.

Robyn demonstrated that her classic pose works even in the desert.

Robyn got intimate with nature.  She is proudly holding up the roll of toilet paper as she marches into the wilderness.  I was so proud of her.

I domesticated a goblin.  They make excellent beasts of burden.

We hiked Little Wildhorse Canyon.  As you can see, I am fatter than the width of the canyon behind me.   We should have done the grand canyon, I'm pretty sure I don't need to diet to walk through that one.


  1. I figured I would take you too Little Wild Horse because you have lost so much weight recently. Maybe when you lose a little more we can go back. I feel good about that option. It was a good time. I'm glad that you came.

  2. We should go back and we can document your weight loss by how big you are in comparison to the canyon. Well, I had a good time even if I didn't like how tight the canyon walls were for me.

  3. Fun trip! I'm proud of Robyn for roughing it so thoroughly. :)

  4. I love that you chilled with the locals.

    That's so fun you two went! Bummer it was the same weekend that Heather and I wanted to come over, but it still sounds like it was a fun trip. :)

  5. Sounds like lots of fun! Glad no goblins got you.

  6. Awesome lizard and awesome rocks.
