The Furnace - Rattlesnake Canyon 715-3

Rattlesnake Canyon

From a rocky ledge, this image from. Rattlesnake Canyon in western Colorado shows what locals call “The Furnace” - a small arch that lights up when the sun sets and hits is just right. The sandstone inside the arch seems to glow orange only for a few moments, then fades as evening comes across the Colorado Plateau. This unique area is part of the McInnis Canyons area just west of Grand Junction and Colorado National Monument. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
