1. Goblin Valley
I doubt there's another spot on Earth that looks more alien than Goblin Valley.
2. Bonneville Salt Flats
The vast, barren Bonneville Salt Flats definitely feel other-worldly.
3. Devil’s Garden, Arches National Park
This sandstone wall at Devil’s Garden looks like it’s made of alien bones.
4. Mexican Hat
A Mexican hat… or a spaceship perched on a precipice?
5. Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument
I’m surprised this woman on Toadstool Trail at the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument isn’t wearing a space suit!
6. Ferron, Emery County
No, this isn’t the set from an old episode of Star Trek. This shot was taken in Ferron.
7. Robbers Roost Canyon
Butch Cassidy hid out here, but it also looks like the surface of a far-away planet...maybe a good spot to hide your space ship from hostile aliens?
8. Capitol Reef
Perhaps the Native American who drew this petroglyph witnessed an alien visitor? It stands to reason that if Capitol Reef has the same geography as a planet, homesick aliens might want to stop by for a visit!
9. Calf Creek Falls
More evidence that Utah’s Native Americans were visited by an alien species?
10. Dinosaur National Monument
The Sound of Silence Trail looks like it could be on Mars.
I expect Spock to show up any time now.
12. Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park
I think this might look like Asteroid B-612, where the LIttle Prince lived.
13. Glen Canyon
Some shots of Planet of the Apes (1968) were filmed at Glen Canyon. Directors returned to Glen Canyon for the remake of the movie in 2001.
14. San Rafael Swell
In the movie, Star Trek (2009), shots of the planet Vulcan were filmed at the San Rafael Swell.
15. Snow Canyon State Park
A rough spot to land a spacecraft, but a pretty cool looking planet.
