Birthday Getaway

KODACHROME BASIN has been compared to Yellowstone National Park, but the geysers that were once active here have become massive sandstone chimney spires geologists believe to be solidified sediment that filled ancient springs or geysers and are left standing after the softer sandstone eroded away.

The blanket was brown by the end of the trip!

We hopped in the car Friday evening and headed south to red rock country to enjoy some hiking in the sun! I was worn out after the seven mile hike. Eli took a nap on Brian's back and serenaded us along the way.
