We ended up spending three nights at Kodachrome Basin State Park, near Cannonville, Utah. Although we tried to find some dispersed camping on nearby BLM land, there were quite a few RVs on the choice sites, probably hunters, and the only spots open were not level and not very attractive. We are in the no-hookup sites for $19/night, a bit pricey for dry camping but the showers are quite nice. There are about 10 full hookup sites for $28 and they were all reserved each night. Build them and they will come.
The one downside to this area is there is no cell service at all. When we were here in 2009 they had wifi at the office, but that is no longer available to the public. So we made a couple trips to the coffee shop in Tropic to check email and publish blogs. The even smaller town of Cannonville is a few miles closer but we didn’t find wifi and only had a bar or two of 1X Verizon, too slow to be useable.
We did some hiking in the park the first two days, then yesterday we paid a visit to beautiful Bryce Canyon, which requires a post all its own.
Photogenic and colorful Kodachrome Basin.
With all these unusual rock formations.
She doesn’t have the prettiest leg.
Inside “Cool Cave”. It was very cool.
And finally Panorama Point, with Jim, Mark and Bobbie admiring the views.
Next up, a day in Bryce Canyon.
