Where is Colorado National Monument?
On the way from Yellowstone to Moab today we move from Dinosaur National Monument to Colorado National Monument.
The Monument is located on the eastern edge of the Colorado Plateau.
It covers approximately 83 km2 from Fruita to Grand Junction.
Somehow we have treated this Monument in our previous trips, strangely but also not perceived much so far. This time we had planned a trip to the Colorado National Monument. Of course, there are more opportunities to experience the place here than just to visit the many viewpoints.
Coming from Grand Junction we reach Monument Rd. the East Entrance. Here, too, our park Pass is the ticket.
