Ute Canyon Sunrise 626-2

Ute Canyon

Ute Canon stretches out into the distance, deep and wide. Overhead, the rising sun peaks through the pine trees, and below my feet is a steep cliff. Far below in the canyon, the Ute Canyon Trail can be seen winding into the distance valley. This view is just off Rim Rock Road and only requires a short walk to see this amazing landscape on the western slope of Colorado.
