Kodachrome Basin State Park in south Utah is named after the colorful sandstone formations - the exposed rocks may be red, yellow, pink, white and brown, and are eroded into a wide variety of shapes. Most unusual are the many tall, narrow columns, known as sand pipes, which are thought to be solidified cores of ancient geysers. The park has a pleasant, partly wooded campground and several trails.
