Kodachrome Basin State Park

Chimney Rock is the feature that brought national attention to this area back in the 40's (according to an info plaque located next to the structure-Kodachrome Basin earned its name when National Geographic photographers came here in the late 1940's, to test out a new type of color film.)
A road takes you to the base of this feature and is but a short drive from where the campground is located.

Is there...

really a chimney/wide fracture on this rock?
I also see that it's leaning a little.

Great photo, Dean.

Re: Is there...

It does lean a bit and I didn't look for a chimney. I think the name comes from the idea that it looks more like a house chimney ( ?? )
