Gold Butte, Little Finland

Overview

Little Finland (aka Hobgoblin's Playground, Lone Palm, and Devil's Fire) is a fascinating area where wind and water have sculpted red sandstone rock into fantastical shapes that rival the best of other areas in the southwestern deserts. From the trailhead, a short scramble leads up into Little Finland, which stretches out for about 0.4 miles to the north. Exploration is easy because the area is fairly level. The farther you go and the more you look, the more you find, but this is more of an elfin wonderland than an area of towering pillars.

This area is a major attraction for photographers. See some fine photography here, and additional ordinary photos from 2014 and before, 2015, and 2016.
