The Road To Kodachrome

Was filled with spectacular beauty at every turn…

P1040422

Bill and I visited Kodachrome Basin State Park in Cannonville, Utah today. WOW!!! What a beautiful and amazing place that is.

The information packet we received upon entering the park says “Kodachrome Basin is a spectacle of towering sandstone chimneys, changing in color and shadow with the day’s mood. Sixty-seven monolithic stone spires called sedimentary pipes accentuate multi-hued sandstone layers revealing 180 million years of geologic time. The color and contrast found here prompted the National Geographic Society in 1949, with consent from Kodak Film Corp., to name the park Kodachrome.”

Not a lot of words are needed to explain the beauty of Kodachrome Basin, so I will let the pictures I captured today speak for themselves, with just a few comments from me…

Lots of pretty fall color changes

Soring red-rock cliff’s upon entering the park

And lot’s of these “sandstone chimneys…” Don’t touch that…. wait for the “real thing…

After Bill and I entered the park, we headed for the picnic area where we enjoyed a lovely lunch…

After lunch, we headed out to explore the park…and Oh my, what spectacular beauty we found…Everywhere you look is a sandstone chimney that looks like it was created by a human artist… but no, it was all created by nature over time

I thought this chimney, at the base of this red rock cliff looked just like the beginning of a Totem Pole. What do you think?

Even the trees seem to want to get in on the act…

This chimney reminded me of an Indian woman wrapped in a blanket.

Both Bill and I had to laugh at the Key drop area for the cabins that can be rented, and  just beside the key drop is the phone… By the way, there is no cell phone service in Kodachrome… but it’s beautiful and so worth the trip…!

Remember at the beginning of this post when I said “don’t touch that… wait for the real thing..?” Well, I will leave this next picture to your own imagination… I’m not going to touch that… 🙂

So many beautiful chimney’s to enjoy at Kodachrome Basin

They even offer horseback trail rides for those so inclined… All the horses were already out when we were there so we didn’t get to partake in that but we would have if they were there… 🙂

The next two pictures I captured as we were leaving Kodachrome Basin.

Bill and I feel so blessed that we have been able to visit so many of the beautiful places Utah has to offer during our stay here. Utah will always hold a special place in our hearts…

Stay Tuned!

      Thanks GG. Bro does love a good picnic lunch. When we are at San Tan Mountain Reserve in Queen Creek Arizona you can come out for a good hike with us and we can do a picnic just like that with you too! Yes, the “don’t touch that” reminded us that Mother Nature really does have a great sense of humor! Love and hugs. XoXo

    Beautiful Country! You surely will hold this State close to your heart. A lovely place to experience your first adventures of living the free and easy life again and be able to experience the fun of being together and dance whenever you please. Keep enjoying the life and by the way that sandwich looked mighty good and made me hungry! Love you and be safe❤️🌻😊
