Diane overlooks the Colorado National Monument from Point 5750 on a cloudy evening.
After spending Saturday hiking in the backcountry of Arches National Park we spent most of Sunday at home getting stuff done around the house and resting after a couple of busy weeks. Throughout the day I noticed that the clouds in the sky were looking pretty nice so we decided to go out for a short evening hike for sunset. I figured we could visit Point 5750 which is a high point in Mesa County located just outside of the Colorado National Monument that I have wanted to visit for a while. It’s easy to access this high point since it’s just a short distance off of the Eagle’s Wing Trail, one of the many Tabeguache (Lunch Loop) trails in the area.
