The colorful sandstone geology of Kodachrome Basin State Park lead to it’s name – The National Geographic Society named it such, and despite potential legal risk from Kodak films the name was adopted.
The monolithic spires rise up throughout the park. The sandstone seems so fragile that just brushing up against it seems to take off a layer.
I am unsure of the name of this rock.
We took the Grand Parade hike, which leads past most of the highlights and into a couple of the box canyons.
The vegetation that is in the area was in bloom from the recent monsoon rains.
Our visit complete, we headed off towards our next stop – Bryce National Park – but not before enjoying more of the scenery of the area around Kodachrome Basin.
