Cold Shivers Point - Colorado National Monument

One of many scenic overlooks in Colorado National Monument ...

October 10, 2012 - I had a window of free time while in Grand Junction today, and I paid a visit to Colorado National Monument. While I have previously been to Cold Shivers Point on Rim Rock Drive, I had never taken pictures or made a video.

I think the video shows why "Cold Shivers Point" is a fitting name. From the observation area, it is a steep and harrowing vertical drop. :o)

Cold Shivers Point


Cold Shivers Point is in proximity to the west entrance of the park. It is the first main pull out that's uphill from the tunnel.

The overlook provides spectacular views of Columbus Canyon.

My favorite is the third photo, the vertical one.
