TAKE A HIKE IN CO­LO­RA­DO NA­TIO­NAL MO­NU­MENT

Vocable (Anglais) - - Focus -

Co­lo­ra­do Na­tio­nal Mo­nu­ment, es­ta­bli­shed in 1911 thanks to John Otto, is one of the state’s most im­pres­sive land­scapes, co­ve­ring 32 square miles of na­tu­ral­ly sculp­ted rock. The pla­teau rises over 2,000 feet above the Grand Val­ley of the Co­lo­ra­do Ri­ver, and of­fers stun­ning views of co­lour­ful sheer-wal­led ca­nyons and rock sculp­tures. Co­lo­ra­do Na­tio­nal Mo­nu­ment’s ele­ven ca­nyons were car­ved by ero­sion over mil­lions of years. Du­ring a hike, you can en­coun­ter a wide range of ani­mals such as squir­rels, mule deer, moun­tain lions or even bi­ghorn sheep if you’re lu­cky.
