Colorado National Monument

Colorado National Monument is a high plateau located near Grand Junction on Interstate 70 crossing central Colorado toward Denver. The northern side of the raised plateau has had enormous canyons eroded into it by ancient rains. The park service built a winding road to follow the zig-zag rim above these  canyons, providing a wealth of easy-to-use scenic overlooks.
