Southwest Road Trip Part 7: Colorado River and Colorado National Monument

On the Fourth of July, I decided to do a full day whitewater rafting trip in Moab before finally making my way to Grand Junction, Colorado that afternoon. What a great way to spend Independence Day! It was so nice to be somewhat cold after over  week in the desert heat!

I also love Colorado, so I was ecstatic to finally get there. So much so I decided to get up for a sunrise photo shoot at the Colorado National Monument. Once again, the sky didn’t have a single cloud, but I ended up with some good stuff.
