Last week, while my wife attended a convention in Grand Junction, I got to play in the canyons nearby.
Monument Canyon, Colorado National Monument
Coke Ovens, Monument Canyon
Felicia ditches the convention for a few hours and joins me for a day hike in Big Dominguez Canyon.
This is a brand new pedestrain and equestrian bridge across the Gunnison River, greatly increasing access to Colorado's newest protected wilderness.
Felicia has to go back to work, so I drive her back to Grand Junction.
I return to further explore the canyon. Hey, someone has to do it.
The Gunnsion River, a tributary of the Colorado. Rafters like to float down and
camp at the mouth of the canyon.

March 31, 7:30 PM. All is quiet.
April 1, 7:30 AM. April Fools.
Nothing like a fresh coating of snow in the canyons.
