My friend Amy and I have enjoyed Skywatch Friday, and ABC Wednesday so much, that we have put our heads together to create "Super Park Saturday!" In case you have not figured it out, both Amy and I are national park junkies. We wanted the excuse to post some of our favorite park photos. We envisioned Saturday to be dedicated to all parks, not just national ones. If you would like to partake, Amy will be keeping track of the master list. If it gets too big, we will find a managing system. All parks are welcome including city, county,or state. If the land belongs to the public, it is up for grabs! Below is the emblem we created to use, if you would like to you it, you may, if you do not want to but still want to post, thats cool too!
I decided to kick off Super Park Saturday with a photo from Colorado National Monument. I decided to take a little trip yesterday that turned into a 16 hour day with most of it involving driving. I had plans to go to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, which I did, but most of the roads where closed. I managed to see some of the canyon. Because it was only 1:30 when I was done, I decided to go to the Colorado National Monument. Once there, I spent a number of hours driving through, hiking, and stopping to take photos. I decided to drive Interstate 70 back because route 50 was a bit scary earlier in the day with ice and I figured 70 would be a safer way back, but it added several hours onto my drive time. This photo was taken from one of the many easily accessible pull overs. I like it because it was one of the few where the photo shows the mountains in the distance, they were hard to capture because of the distance.
