Location

We will drive down on the 16th and camp in the Monument. Near the campground is a famous overlook that looks down on the hike we will take the next day. On the 17th, we will hike the Monument Canyon from bottom to top where we will have a car parked on the Co Nat'l Monument Rim Dirve. This is a wonderfully scenic hike that passes by the Independence Monument as well as the Kissing Couple, famous monoliths in the park. The early canyon wildflowers should be at their height and there is always a good chance of seeing the desert bighorn sheep.
