Cowboy Hat Tower

Monday, February 24, 2014

Here’s a mini trip report from a quick hike Diane and I took after work to visit the Cowboy Hat Tower near Fruita in the Devil’s Canyon Area. The temperatures have been pretty warm here lately so we wanted to get in a short local hike before the sun went down. I can’t wait for longer days to arrive so I can get some longer hikes in after work! These are just a few snapshots I took with my little Canon S110 as the sun was going down for the day.

As we arrived near the Cowboy Hat Tower it appeared to be in the spotlight.

We climbed up for a closer view.

This would make a nicer shot with better skies and my better camera!

Sun lights up the sandstone as we hike back to the trailhead.
