Journey of Discovery bicycle tour



June 12: I arived a Kodachrome Basin State Park around 12:30 pm. The ride from Bryce canyon was all downhill for the first 12 miles to the village of Canyonville. But the wind did its best to blow me back up the hill. The turnoff to Kodachrome Basin was Cottonwood Canyon Rd., an up and down and winding trail thru beautiful canyons of different colored cliff walls and formations. Meanwhile, this park is pristine, with beautiful shaded sites that are nicely spaced. I've never seen such nice rest room and shower facilities at a state park. And peaceful--the breeze blowing thru the pinon pine and juniper trees, the hummingbirds buzzing around so close you could reach out and touch them, and a pair of Chuckar Partridges with 9 chicks just strolled thru my site. All of this nestled in a bowl of red and white rock formations. Just amazing. What a blessing to take his all in.
