Panorama Trail Petrified Lightning

One interesting geological feature can be found at the beginning of the Panorama Trail in Kodachrome Basin State Park. Soon after passing the "Fred Flintstone Spire" you will see a sign that reads "Petrified Lightning." There are numerous cream-colored fractures that zig-zag down from the red sandstone cliffs. They look strikingly similar to bright lightning strikes flashing down from a red sky. This is just one of the many interesting points of interest along this popular trail. More information about the park and trails can be found by viewing a brochure of the park (in .pdf format).
