Colorado National Monument Cañon

Colorado National Monument Cañon


In the summer of 2014 our family took a trip across the country, to look at specific days of that trip, click any of the internal links listed under “Days”. There is also a slideshow of the entire trip just below, just click the play button and watch (if slideshow doesn’t load, click this gallery link). First, we drove west for a few days, then visited Colorado, Arches National Park, and Canyonlands National Park. We then drove to California, with an interesting night in Tonopah, Nevada. We visited Yosemite National Park, somewhere I had been wanting to visit for a long time. We also visited SanFrancisco, Boise, and Glacier Nation Park, among many other interesting places.
