Artist's Description

One of the many wonderous stops along Scenic Byway 12 is Kodachrome Basin. Kodachrome Basin lies within the boundaries of the Grand Staircase, Escalante National Monument, Utah. Hot springs and geysers filled up with sediment and solidified over time leaving large sand pipes scattered throughout the State Park. Most of the park can be viewed within a few hours.

This one photograph was taken along the way to Chimney Rock in early afternoon. The rocks change colors as the day goes by and turn from white to grey to orange to red. It is really quite impressive.

Kodachrome Basin is located near Cannonville about 10 miles south along a paved dirt road. Due to the fact that this park always has such great blue skies and multicolored sandstone arches and pipes, the National Geographical Society and the Kodak Film Corporation named it Kodachrome Basin, after the film!

Two other areas to explore while here are Shakespeare Arch and Grosvenor Arch. The best place to view the pipes and interesting sandstone formations would be near the Grand Parade.
