Kodachrome Basin State Park

By Jim Smith   Apr 12, 2014

Kodachrome Basin State Park – The last week in March we spent in Kodachrome Basin near Bryce National Park. The park was aptly named by National Geographic in 1948 for its rich geologic colors. This is the second time we've been to this park and I have to say we enjoyed it just as much this time. We hiked some trails we hadn't done before as well as some familiar ones which were fun to see again.

Right behind our campsite was this beautiful smooth, deep red slickrock bench. We kept walking out there to feel the slickrock under our feet and for the beautiful view to the south. In the evening the fins to the south would light up and the slickrock would glow. A weather system was moving in the next day and it produced these nice cirrus clouds. I just had to shoot the scene.

We left the next day for lower elevation to escape the coming cold front.
