Monument Canyon Sunrise 3
Monument Canyon, Colorado National Monument
On a perfect summer morning, Monument Canyon welcomes the first light of day. From a rock cliff high above the valley below, the landscape stretches out and provides a beautiful scene to start the day.
This area is a part of Colorado National Monument. It sits on the Colorado Plateau and is just west of Grand Junction and a few miles south of Fruita. Rim Rock Road winds 22 miles up and down along the rims of several distinct canyons.
