"A scenic bypass just outside Grand Junction" Colorado National Monument by zrim

Colorado National Monument Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 94 photos

I don't think anyone would want to center a trip around Colorado Monument, but it is an interesting diversion for a couple hours. Only a few minutes from Grand Junction or an easy side trip from Arches National Park.

    I just wanted to see your pictures and comments. I liked the canyon for a one day stop there. Nice work

    Might be taking this route on the way to Arches. Definitely looks like it's worth a stop.
