Colorado National Monument

Date: Nov. 2nd, 2016

Located near Grand Junction, CO, this National Park unit is transected by the beautiful 23 mile Rim Rock Drive, and dotted with short and long trails off the Drive.

Right off the East entrance is the Trail to Devil’s Kitchen.

Further along the road is the expansive Ute Canyon

Views of the Mesa and Coke Ovens

Saw many Desert Cottontails in the area, this is the only one that slowed down for a photo op.

Towards west end of the Drive, I hiked the short Canyon Rim Trail.
