Awoke in Grand Junction and searched for a place for breakfast. Found a nifty place called The Egg and I. If you are in or near Grand Junction the one we ate at was on West Park Drive. We had a very positive experience. The place was bright, airy, and quite cheerful; staff was friendly, and the food top notch.
Our next move was to journey into the Colorado National Monument. A few pictures:
Unfortunately, it was overcast and only glimmers of sunlight poked through the clouds.
The next leg of our journey took us from Grand Junction through Moab & Monticello (Utah) and over to Cortez. That is where we crashed for the evening. Next up Mesa Verde National Park.
