Beautiful and Serene!

Came here on our annual Southwest trip in April of 2017. Checked out most of the viewpoints and short trails on the first day and then camped at the campground. Next day we hiked the Black Ridge Trail from the visitors center, came down the CCC Trail, and hitched a ride back. Saw a big, bright green and yellow lizard! Views were fantastic! I'd really like to come back and hike around some more!

several visits - all hiking, climbing, canyons. Grand Junction is our huge metropolis where we head once a while to hit REI and bookstores :) and typically doing some hiking in the area.

Still more to explore  Sucess!

5 minutes from where I live. I explore and train for climbing peaks here. I still have places I've yet to visit on my list. Moab is crowded. Check this place out if you want to see awesomeness without being surrounded by awe's...

what a place!  Sucess!

absolutely love this place!....and it's really great that something so special is close to the front range(~3.5-4 hrs). independence monument will always be a special climb for me, and kissing couple along with other towers certainly have my attention.

can't wait for what's next!
