National Monument state park

I spent the night in Glenwood Springs and in the morning headed out towards the National Monument state park.
The views along the way reminded me of Clint Eastwood’s westerns – which is probably because he must have filmed them nearby. Hugh canyons on both sides of the roads, with the Colorado river alongside the road much of the way.
The National Monument state park is essentially a road running up and down a canyon ridge, with trails going off the road every so often. The views were very nice, the rock formations formed by eroded mountain side are the main attraction.
