Photographer's Note

the first time I ever heard about Kodachrome Basin was when I saw this photo (currently removed) by Henk, and from that moment I knew I had to see the it. apart from the fact that the place is excellent for anatomy lessons, it is a paradise for photographers - multitude rock formations in various shades of red, yellow, pink, white and brown, fairly easy access and despite the fact that the campground is usually full, the place does not feel crowded.

about the photo: according to the locals, the global climate change has come to Utah too - it rained every evening, which is considered very uncommon for this time of the year, and for us meant very little chance of sunset photos. this evening we had run away from the overwhelming crowds of people in Bryce National Park and decided to stop in Kodachrome Basin basin before heading out to Cottonwood Canyon Road (where we would meet cowboys, cows, coyotees and mudslides). for some reason the gods of photography were kind enough to part the clouds for that exact moment when we were in Kodachrome Basin, and also turn the "Intense Red Light" switch. this is how the result looked.
