Visiting Colorado National Monument

Once we go down the Rockies heading west, we are back in the American southwest, it’s exotic, it’s the best part of the US, it’s total happiness. We stop in Grand Junction to fix some stuff on the van. Just south west of the city lies Colorado National Monument, a succession of colorful canyons. Even with the 35° it’s a wonderful excursion, and there isn’t many visitors so it’s really pleasant! It reminds me of Arizona and makes me impatient for Utah.
