Kodachrome Basin State Park is about 25 miles from Bryce Canyon NP. It has some similar features but is also different and worth exploring. It is not as extensive as Bryce Canyon NP but we felt it was a worthwhile place to visit. We arrived at lunch time and ate in the picnic area. We headed out to Angel's Palace Trail which goes on top of a rock structure and provides great views of the area and gives you a good sense of the park. Here, the columns are just as up-in-the-air as Bryce Canyon but they are spaced farther apart. We went to the Shakespeare Arch/ Sentinel Trail and walked to the arch while our hiking companions went around the sentinel trail. After that, we drove to Chimney Rock which is a very tall singular column. You wonder how it survived when all the rocks around it have eroded away.
We enjoyed our day at Kodachrome Basin. It's not Bryce Canyon but certainly worthwhile to see.

Retirement is great. We bought a travel trailer and are exploring National Parks. (Actually, we bought one and sold it and bought a second one better suited to us. It happens...) And I have time to do some woodworking projects and things around the house. And now I have gotten interested in ham radio so there goes any free time.
