The Goosegog is a sprawling lump of Cutler Sandstone, about 200 feet tall, right by the road. The rock is really good when it's good, but it's all a bit grittier and burlier than it appears. More Fisher Towers than Monument Basin.
The Goosegog is located on Potash Road, beyond the Potash Plant. Drive about 4.5 miles past the evaporation ponds, and reach a sharp bend with a great view out over a gooseneck meander on the Colorado River.

It's only a couple more miles from here to the Goosegog.
