Colorado-Arkansas Jan 19-20, 2013

Had to deal with clear skies this weekend, so I headed for the Colorado National Monument near Grand Junction to take advantage of the great conditions for shallow fog in the valley. I took some pics from the canyon rim Saturday night, then played the road up the canyon for the morning sunrise. Took some pics of the semi-frozen Arkansas River on my way back home. A nice, cold, winter weekend!
