Camel Rock Doesn't this rock look like a camel? :)
Bird This is a really beautiful park. Amongst all the canyons and rock formations, this bird flew all around me and didn't even seem scared!
Colorado National Monument Just one of many amazing canyons.
Colorado National Monument The great thing about the park is you can hike along the bottom at the base among these formations! I drove along the main road, which was quite impressive, and did not have time to hike.
Bird I am not sure what kind of bird that is, but it proudly soared through the air! :)

    John Otto John Otto is the biggest hero of this park. Over one hundred years ago, Otto created the trails and advocated that the area become a national park. Without Otto's fantastic work, amazing parks like this could have overrun by suburban homes and development.
