Independence Monument

Independence Monument is perhaps the most iconic view and formation within the Colorado National Monument boundaries. Seen here about 30 minutes before sunrise, the lights of Grand Junction can be seen shining in the early morning hours. The horizon lit up briefly in an orange glow before giving way further to sunrise. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
