|Rim of the Canyon|
|Bass at Escalante|
Saturday we took off to Escalante (named after a Spanish explorer) Petrified Forest State Park which also had a reservoir. The park was nice, but the climb to the forest was steep and had drop offs so I chickened out (I don't do heights) so Mac went on his own. He said it was a great view, but not much petrified wood. Then he tried out the fishing and immediately caught a bass, but he wanted trout. I painted while he fished and it was a nice afternoon, but no more fish.
The next day we went to Kodachrome Basin State Park and WOW. it was wonderful. Instead of being on the rim we were on level ground and took one of the hikes through the formations. We saw dozens of what are called Hoodoos ( a type of "chimney" rock formations). The walk was easy, but the sun was HOT. We saw an Indian cave with petroglyphs and loads of Hoodoos. We spent the whole morning there and I definitely want to go back.
