Rim Rock Drive, Colorado

In the previous post, I mentioned that the next installment would be about the ride from Grand Junction to Monticello, Utah. But before that, I forgot to mention a day’s ride I took during my three-day stay in Grand Junction.

Colorado National Monument preserves one of the grand landscapes of the American West. Towering monoliths exist within a vast plateau and canyon panorama. You can experience sheer-walled, red rock canyons along the twists and turns of Rim Rock Drive, where you may spy bighorn sheep and soaring eagles. You can read more of the history of Rim Rock Drive here

Here are the photos from my solitary ride

Finally, I arrived back at the motel where I began to pack ready for an early start tomorrow.
