Having never been to the Cathedral Valley, I wasn't sure what to expect. I can assure you that I did not expect to see such a beautiful valley floor interrupted by sharp cliff edges. This place was so quiet, my ears were ringing.

This part of Utah always intrigues me with all of the sandstone formations that rise out of the ground in seemingly random locations.

The Temple of the Moon and the Temple of the Sun were some of the larger sandstone formations found in the Cathedral Valley.
