2011: October Outing – Part 2

07 Oct

We start our second day in a bit of a fog bank but as we head into the Colorado National Monument it starts to clear.

With clear skies we spend most of the day hiking and taking in the sights

We will take the Coke Ovens Trail to get a different vantage point away from most the other tourists also in the park.

Our big hike on the day is on the Devils Kitchen Trail where we will get into the opening in the upright boulders of the Kayenta Formation.

We will get back to our hotel in Grand Junction and grab a bite to eat.  Afterwards I will get a chance to meet a fellow Railfan (Ben) that up until then I have only know via internet forums.

Afterwards I will take a few night shots in and around the depots

      Colorado is a great place to visit/live year around if you are into outdoor activities!
