Kodachrome Basin State Park in Utah is situated 5,800 feet above sea level.  Geologists believe Kodachrome Basin was once similar to Yellowstone National Park with hot springs and geysers, which eventually filled up with sediment and solidified.  Through time, the Entrada sandstone surrounding the solidified geysers eroded, leaving large sand pipes.  Sixty-seven sand pipes ranging from 6 to 150 feet tall have been identified in the park.  (Source: Wikipedia, Image: Tracie)
