We left the Lake Powell area driving on Hwy 89 to Hwy 12, which is an All American Road, with plenty of beautiful scenery. I had downloaded an audio book, which we haven't done for awhile. We have several drives of 4 hours or more coming up in the next few weeks and so a book was in order. I downloaded a thriller called The Panther by Nelson De Mille, which is 21 hours long!! That should keep us occupied on the long drives. We got to Kodachrome Basin State Park, which is about 9 miles or so from Hwy 12 not far from Bryce. I had read in the Mike and Terri Church's southwest Camping Destinations book that they thought this was one of the most scenic campgrounds in the country and I think they are right. It is set in a basin surrounded by red sandstone cliffs and interesting spires. National Geographic Society were so struck by the photogenic character of the place that they suggested it be named in honor of the pioneering color film. Originally they changed the name but later got permission from the Kodak company to use the name and it has been that ever since. As we drive on the 9 mile road to the campground, we are already struck by the beauty of the place.
We are enjoying our stay here. Stay tune for further adventures.
