Chimney Rock

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 19 January 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This huge sedimentary pipe is named Chimney Rock. It stands out in a wide open space all by itself.

The state park first got its name following a 1948 National Geographic Society exploration, where the park’s stunning landscape of contrasting colors inspired society photographers to nickname the area “Kodachrome Flat,” after the name of the newly released photo film from Kodak. After some concern for infringing Kodak's trademark, Utah sought permission from the company to use Kodachrome in the name. Kodak granted permission.

I have not heard the sediment pipes before. This image has widened the world and added new things to my consciousness. Thank you

Amazing how much time must have passed for the rock to be eroded into this shape. Kodak must be very happy with the free advertising.

A fine picture of this unique monolith. I found it interesting that Kokak gave them permission to use Kodachrome.
