Kodachrome Basin State Park
Kodachrome Basin State Park contains eroded, multicolored rock formations in various shades of red, yellow, pink, white, and brown; together with the (usually) deep blue sky and occasional green vegetation, this combination led the National Geographical Society to name the area, in 1949, with the permission of Kodak Film Corporation.
The one unique feature of the park is the presence of over 60 spires or chimneys of rock, known as sand pipes, which are thought to be solidified sediment that filled ancient springs or geysers, left standing after the softer surrounding Entrada sandstone weathered away. The tallest is 170 feet high.
