The Colorado National Monument, located just outside Fruita, Colorado, is one of the must see places in North America. The monument’s landscape looks a lot like southern Utah and is one of Colorado’s best kept secrets.
When we arrived in Fruita we had never heard of this place before, we were there to meet up with our fellow Leisure Travel Van owners and good friends from Michigan. We had no idea we were about to see something that would be remembered for the rest of our lives!
When I think of Colorado, I think of the Rocky Mountains, large pine forests, ski lifts, and snow up to your elbows. I never imagined seeing the kind of rock formations displayed here in the Colorado National Monument. The monument is located on the border of Utah and perhaps that is why this out of place in Colorado monument looks so much more like Utah. If you haven’t been here, I highly recommend putting this place on your list!
