Colorado Monument, USA - 23rd March 2008

By: wourpet

On top of the monumet we could see down over some very large canyons.  This is a picture of us hanging onto a tree on the edge.  I was pretty cool -- didn't get too scared.

The Colorado Mountain is part of the Colorado Plateau

It covers a large part of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Nevada.  The sign had losts of information about it.

The sign says that the Colorado Plateau moves independently from the rest of North America -- like an island in the dirt -- and about 10,000 years ago it popped up a mile high above the rest of the country.  Up here on the Monument we are even higher.

Looking off the monument in the other direction we could see the Grand Valley and the city of Grand Junction and other towns like Fruita, Palisades, Clifton and Whitewater.  The Colorado River flows through the valley.
