Colorado National Monument | Friday, October 23, 2015
After a few days of rainy weather in the Grand Valley the storms finally started to clear out of the area today, so I decided to drive up into the Colorado National Monument after work to take some photos around sunset. It’s always a great way to spend a couple of hours.
Evening light on the sandstone of Columbus Canyon.
There was a nice little storm over the Grand Valley that produced a very vibrant rainbow.
The same rainbow over Red Canyon.
I only went as far as Ute Canyon on this visit to the Monument.
Warm evening light along Rim Rock Drive.
Home sweet home. Overlooking Grand Junction from the Red Canyon Overlook.
One last view over Red Canyon to the Grand Mesa and Chalk Mountain before I headed home.
