TAKE A HIKE IN COLORADO NATIONAL MONUMENT
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.
