April Travels Part III: Colorado National Monument

 

 

 

 
Above the Colorado city of Grand Junction is the magnificent Colorado National Monument one of the jewels of the US National Parks with which we were unfamiliar. The Rim Rock Drive that winds along the edge of the canyons must be one of the great drives of the world, so put it on your bucket list and prepare to be in awe.

The Navajo Loop Trail from Sunset point descending into the Bryce Canyon Amphitheatre.

The perfect finish to our visit to Bryce Canyon hiking the Navajo Trail into the Amphitheatre, connecting with the Queens Garden Trail and returning to the canyon rim at Sunrise Point. Look for Queen Victoria in the photo gallery.

One final view before leaving this precious jewel of a place and a thank you to the National Park Service for maintaining it so perfectly for us all to enjoy.
