Photographer's Note

We visited Kodachrome Basin State Park twice. The day before the sun spent most of the time hiding behind the clouds. This day, as the afternoon was two hot for a long walk in Bryce Canyon, we returned here and was lucky with the light. This view point is near Chimney Rock at the dead-end of a track outside the actual basin but still within the park.

"Geologists believe Kodachrome Basin State Park was once similar to Yellowstone National Park with hot springs and geysers, which eventually filled up with sediment and solidified. Through time, the Entrada sandstone surrounding the solidified geysers eroded, leaving large sand pipes. Sixty-seven sand pipes ranging from two to 52 meters have been identified in the park. Massive sandstone chimneys, change from gray and white to shades of red depending on the day's mood. Numerous rocks and coves offer solitude, quiet and unique desert beauty."

Nous avons visité ce parc deux fois. La veille, le soleil n'avait pas très envie de sortir derrière les nuages. Ce jour, comme il faisait trop chaud pour une longue balade à l'intérieur du Bryce Canyon, nous sommes revenus ici. Ce point de vue se trouve à l'extérieur du site principale, au bout d'une piste près du Chimney Rock, toujours à l'intérieur du parc.
