Near Grand Junction, CO–the Colorado National Monument
This special place intrigued me as much as the Grand Canyon had years ago. Each overlook has its own beauty and the whole thing is easier to grasp than the bigger canyon. And that beauty changes with the movement of the sun, creating shadows in different crags and crannies. It is a photographer’s delight, and I think my friend, Sandy Guillory, captured many of those delights. I hope you enjoy this small tour.
We had a hard time in the high altitude and also it was very cold. But we were so thrilled with the views, we only remembered to complain when we were back in the warm car.
Sandy found all sorts of things that were biblical, such as…
And after the slain lamb, there was Moses’ “burned” bush. (She’s taking pictures of the gorgeous vistas and rocks and I’m documenting tree roots and singed bushes. “What’s wrong with this picture?”)
