Colorado National Monument

If you like the Grand Canyon, you might just love the Colorado National Monument outside of Grand Junction.
Gorgeous red rock gorges (pun intended) just outside the city.  Lots of hiking trails long and short.  We drove the twelve mile loop and did many of the sort hikes from the parking area to the overlooks.  

Don't let anyone tell you that dry heat is more comfortable.  It was H-O-T, but we enjoyed our day.  I'll be sharing this at Seasonal Sundays


  1. People often think of Colorado as John Denver's Rocky Mountains, but the Grand Junction part of the state is considerably more arid and desert like. Still so beautiful, though. I've been to Grand Junction only once to visit friends and wasn't fortunate enough to see the CNM. So beautiful!

  2. Hi Diane! Oh, what a gorgeous place! I would love to see it too.
    Thank you so much for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. Hi, thanks for stopping by Redo 101 and leaving a comment about Thanksgiving - sounds like y'all have a great time, too. Colorado sounds wonderful, it's my dream to go there some day.I just stopped by to give you a "follow" and to say hi.


  4. You got some spectacular shots! I find taking landscape pictures challenging. I love hot weather, but not trekking around in a hundred degrees! Looks like home to me.
