Devil’s Kitchen

Thursday, November 5, 2015

It’s been pretty rainy and wet here in the Grand Valley for the past day or two, but this afternoon the storms finally started to clear out of the area and I decided to drive up to the Colorado National Monument after work to take a few photos. I ended up just going to the Devil’s Kitchen in No Thoroughfare Canyon and hanging around there until shortly after sunset. Here are a few photos from the evening.

Fallen Rock Fall Colors

Monday, November 2, 2015

After returning home from Denver this afternoon, I decided to drive up to the Colorado National Monument about an hour before sunset to see if the cottonwoods in upper Ute Canyon had changed colors yet. I had checked on them a few times over the past two weeks and found them to be mostly green, but this time many of them had changed to a nice golden yellow. After taking a quick hike over to Suction Point, I watched the sun set from near the Fallen Rock Overlook and took a few photos after the sun was down. On my way back down from the overlook I also stopped for a quick photo over Red Canyon towards the city lights of Grand Junction in the distance.
