Denver Photographer | Colorado National Monument

One of my favorite things to do when we have time between work and school is to go on family adventures! Inspired by my friend Michelle, I picked up a National Park Service passport this summer on one of our many visits to Rocky Mountain National Park. What a cool lifetime goal, to see all of the wonderful national parks in the United States. This weekend we decided we needed a little break from sports, school and work and took off for Moab, Utah…with the plans of adding a few stamps to our passport. To make this adventure even more timely, the National Park Service is celebrating their centeninnial and 4th graders get a free annual pass to visit all national parks.
Our first stop was Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction/Fruita, Colorado. We have driven this route many times on our way to visit family in Arizona and I am embarassed to say, we never even thought to check out this amazing site. In fact, in my mind, the name implies a small pull-out with a plaque, not the amazing Rim Rock Drive with spectacular red walled canyons, diverse plants and interesting animals. If you are in western Colorado, make sure to take time to at least drive through this beautiful monument and stop at their interactive vistor’s center.
I will be sharing a few photos from the other two national parks we visited and more about our three day weekend in Moab! Such a fun personal project for me to take photos at these beautiful places, inspiring! Stay tuned…
