After bidding farewell to our fellow photographers we were off to Utah and an evening shoot at Bryce Canyon National Park.
We decided to explore Colorado National Monument as we left Grand Junction. The Monument is located just West of Grand Junction and South of I-70.
Our visit to the Monument was during the middle of the day so that the sun was high in the sky and made for quite contrasty images. It was still fun to explore a lesser known National Monument, and one that had not been in our plans.
and we saw bighorn sheep right by the road. As I was in the passenger seat, I was able to get a couple of photos of it.
It would have been fun to investigate it more, but we did not have the time, and the heat of the season would have been a factor. I imagine that the park gets a lot of visitation on the weekends due to it’s proximity to Grand Junction.
