Coke Ovens Morning, Colorado National Monument 918-1

Coke Ovens, Colorado National Monument

Just before sunrise, the soft pastel skies of western Colorado awaken over Colorado National Monument. This photograph shows the Coke Ovens, one of the iconic landmarks of this less-visited national park just west of Grand Junction. Rim Rock Road winds along the tops of these canyons, and the views are magnificient at every turn.
