Kodachrome Basin

Sixty-seven monolithic stone spires called sedimentary pipes accentuate multi-hued sandstone layers revealing 180 million years of geologic time.  The color and beauty found here prompted a 1948 National Geographic Society expedition to name the area Kodachrome after the popular color film. 


We camped in the valley area below the towering ridge. There were many incredible hikes in the area that took you to high vantage points.
