I am on a short trip to the red rock country of western Colorado and eastern Utah. I am spending a couple of days in the Colorado National Monument. We have driven past the area at least a hundred times on our way somewhere else, without really knowing what it was. Now I know. The place is really a monument to the forces of Nature. Huge canyons, with standing rocks, roads which threaten to drop you into a deep canyon, and fantastic vistas. My photos cannot possibly show the grandeur of the place. Clarence and I are camped In The Saddlehorn campground, so named because of a large rock formation resembling a saddle and Saddlehorn. It is 9:00pm and it is dead quiet! We are ready for bed. Lots of photos to be taken tomorrow.
