20 Things to Do in GJ: #6 The Colorado National Monument

Oh man! I'm down to 20 days left in Grand Junction! Getting after that list and speaking of which, I've got one down.

#6 has been knocked off the list!  In the Grand Valley of Western Colorado we are blessed with having the gorgeous Colorado National Monument right next door. For $15.00 you can get a week long pass to tour the entire place. There are at 3 least canyons and fantastic monoliths that date back billions of years. It seems nearly unreal when you're standing on the edge of a cliff looking across the echoing eons of the erosion process. Truly beautiful. The valley has no smog either so it is crystal clear as you gaze across the scenery.

Speaking of scenery, just have a looksie at the images below. I promise I took them all on my iPhone 7 and only edited two. Also, the timer feature is pretty sweet on the camera. Anyway. I'll let the images speak for themselves.

I mean, what can I even say? The high desert is an intense and volatile place, but the beauty of it is without question.
