- The Moon Rock
Located on the Ribbon Trail, outside of Grand Junction CO. this spot is popular with the locals to watch the sunset or stargaze. It’s literally a giant rock with views of the city one direction and The Colorado National Monument the other direction. The best time to shoot here is right at the end of golden hour & the start of blue hour. Let me tell you now, you will not be disappointed.
- Rifle Falls State Park
It’s not common in Colorado to come across a giant waterfall that actually flows, let alone 3 of them. Rifle Falls is a unique spot that will definitely get you cool photos but the waterfall itself is not the spot that will look like another country, it’s actually the area around the falls. Western CO is covered in red/white rock, the right spots can come out looking like an entire mediterranean or desertous getaway. Tell me I’m wrong:
- The Base of Mt. Garfield
Mt. Garfield stands between Grand Junction & Palisade CO. Fair warning, the hike is hard- like really hard- which is why I recommend sticking around the base of the cliff where stiff piles of sand and rock create a really interesting location. The photos I’ve taken here always come out looking like it could have been taken in a southern desert and I love it.
