Last weekend's trip to the Colorado National Monument also afforded a side trip to nearby Fruita, Colorado, for a town festival and car show. Beautiful automobile restorations were shown off in the town square, and I snapped a few photos of my favorites.
It is easy to overuse adjectives when describing the Colorado National Monument: Amazing, Dramatic, Beautiful, Stunning, Serene, Soulful, Sacred. This unique place is a treat for the eyes and nourishment to the soul. Red rock canyons transform in color as the sun journeys overhead casting shifting shadows and shapes on the canyon walls. You can literally dangle your legs over the edge of a cliff while surveying a panorama filled with red spires and gigantic monoliths that almost glow in the sunset - all within a few minutes walk from the Saddlehorn Campground.
My kitchen faucet would only hiss and sputter after I flushed, filled, and sanitized the water system after finally de-winterizing a few days ago. It was puzzling because the bathroom water supply was working normally. After over an hour or so of fiddling with it - bypassing the hot water tank, connecting city water and also trying the internal tank and pump, I called it quits for the night.
