Colorado National Monument, Fruita, Colorado

Today we drove up to the Colorado National Monument which is about 2 miles from our RV site. The scenic drive through the monument is approximately 23 miles long and took 15 years to build. It is pretty much dug out of the rock. One of the signs said that 9 men died while building the road when the rock caved in on them while they were making a half tunnel in the cliff face. This was back in like 1933 or so. We hiked 6 miles of trails within the monument. Definately a place to visit if you are passing through west Colorado. We may have to come back here again.
