The Heart of the World Colorado National Monument preserves one of the grand landscapes of the American West. But this treasure is much more than a monument. Towering monoliths exist within a vast plateau and canyon panorama. You can experience sheer-walled, red rock canyons along the twists and turns of Rim Rock Drive, where you may spy bighorn sheep and soaring eagles.

My 5 and 10yo sons run this loop with me. Fun, interesting, nice views and a cool, little mining cabin to explore.
