Monument Canyon Sunrise Panorama 1

Monument Canyon, Colorado National Monument

Monument Canyon stretches out as a grand landscape of the western slope. Colorado National Monument is a gem just west of Grand Junction - and not as well known as it should be. Rim Rock Road runs 22 miles through these canyons through this portion of the Colorado Plateau, providing amazing views of several cliffs and rock rock monoliths. This panorama was taken just before sunrise on a peaceful summer morning.

This Colorado panorama is available in custom and larger sizes.
