Having flown into Grand Junction to look for a job and a house, I had three days before Karen would arrive. It was my big chance to convince her to leave Michigan and follow me out west. I found a job, and a house, and still had a few hours left over for a hike!
Colorado National Monument sits on the western edge of town, it's red rock every bit as incredible as Sedona. Devils Kitchen, an arrangement of Stonehengy monoliths, was a short hike and well worth it. Someday I'd love to return with some lighting and photograph this thing at night.
