Kodachrome State Park's Giant Chimney Rock

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Not only is Utah's Kodachrome State Park a place of incredible beauty, with vivid colors and stone chimneys, like so much of Utah, it's a realm where cattle are free to roam the range.  Within the park is one especially spectacular chimney which stands solitary in an open field.  It's height - an amazing 170 feet tall.  Recent rains, and deep ruts carved into the surrounding dirt road, weren't the only obstacle to getting a closer look.  Several cows lounging in the middle of the path, seemed reluctant to move.  And, at one point seemed to think the red hue of my car was perhaps familiar to that of a toreador's cape! However, once the bovines were encouraged to road's edge, we moved the few feet ahead and enjoyed this amazing sight!

What stuning photos, Myrl. I'd never even heard of Kodachrome Park. And the cows add a certain je ne sais quoi to the scene! It reminded me a bit of driving in Kenya and having to stop and sit while the elephants decided to cross a road or just stand on it and stare at us.

I have never had a desire to visit Utah, but you are showing me how beautiful it is, so I might have to make a trip sometime!

Hello Myrl - Kodachrome State Park in Utah certainly lives up to its name.  It looks as if your trip continues to offer great photo opportunities.

Endre Barath, Jr. - I couldn't get over the expressions of the cows either.  Especially, when we were trying to negotiate that dirt road with ruts, and some were laying in the road.

Nina Hollander - Je ne sais quoi is right.  Especially when I'm driving along, and this guy comes over and stares at me through my car window. The red on his face is reflection of my vehicle.

Brian England - I originally had the same thoughts you did about Utah.  However, it was a family member who had made a trip to Zion, that acted as catalyst.  Utah is one of the country's biggest secrets.  However, I noticed that the the 3 National Parks and 3 Utah State Parks along Highway 12 are having their secrets revealed.  There are more visitors there now than there were 10 years ago.  It's a magical place!  

Michael Jacobs - It's hard to limit the photo shots in that part of our country.  There is natural beauty everywhere!

Hi Myrl,
I have never been to Kodachrome State Park.  What an interesting diversion from the infamy of the National Parks you have visited.  There is much more to Utah than most people know. It is a beautiful state! Thanks for sharing.

Myrl Jeffcoat - WOW!!! I'm impressed!!! The only thing I remember about Utah from my Elementary Geography Book is that it has a Salt Lake which I thought was unusual. By the looks of your photos, I'd say it's a dream state for any photographer or person wanting to mozy along until the cows come home!

I want to go! I want to go! I want to go!!!

Really nice of you to share Utah with us and Kodachrome State Park and some
detail information about Utah in your comments.  Great photos, Myrl Jeffcoat.  I have never been to Utah and like Endre, I now feel I have.
