09/24/17 Sunday traveling from Vernal, UT to Grand Junction, CO
After we left Vernal, we took a very small side trip to the other Visitor Center for the Dinosaur NM which is in Dinosaur City, CO. No fee and just a very long road with some overlooks to enjoy, so we didn’t stay but traveled on to see the Colorado National Monument before checking into our motel.
First a view from the pass we went through before dropping down into Grand Junction.
Then the Colorado NM, which is located on the Colorado Plateau were all these other great National Parks exist: Arches, Black Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Mesa Verde, Bryce Canyon, Zion and Grand Canyon. This is one magnificent area. All the pictures below are from our walk near the rim at the Visitor’s Center.
