This is the best we could 4X4

Sept. 26 Our next stop was Cannonville, UT, a short 30 minute drive from Bryce Canyon, which gave us access to the Kodachrome Basin and Grosvenor Arch. Kodachrome Basin approximately 9 miles from Cannonville, is a spectable of towering sandstone chimneys, which change in color and shadow with the day's mood-from red-tinged spires against a blue sky, to soft evening light settling over the desert. This color and contrast prompted the National Geographic Society in 1949, with consent from Kodak Film Corp., to name the park Kodachrome. There are nearly 70 monolithic spires, sedimentary sand pipes ranging from six to 170 feet in height, jut up from the valley floor or protrude from the sandstone.

Grosvenor Arch is 10 miles from the Kodachrome Basin. It took us approximately 2 hours round trip on an unpaved road to get to the arch. (Hey Ed, we got to do some 4wheeling)

Sept. 27 Today we traveled about 125 miles along the Scenic 12 Byway, Grand Staircase Escalante to Torrey, UT. Of all the roads we've traveled this had to be the most picturesque drive yet. Don't miss these pictures...
