Colorado National Monument
Everyone who visits Colorado National Monument claims, “it’s more of a national park!” Just six miles away from Downtown Grand Junction, Colorado National Monument consists of more than 20,000 acres of striking canyonlands beckoning to be explored. The area was designated as a national monument in 1911 and has since expanded into a mecca for outdoor adventure enthusiasts.

Winter in Colorado is a magical time, it can also hinder some of your favorite activities. Sometimes the snow is too deep for hiking, cold temperatures and blistering winter winds can make snowshoeing or cross country skiing a chore, and some of the more well-known trails are often busy, making finding a parking spot difficult. Colorado National Monument offers a reprieve from the hardships of winter adventures, and just might have you reconsidering what your favorite Colorado season actually is
