Date: June 28, 2010

Come visit with Colorado National Monument staff as we host a booth each Thursday evening at the American National Bank Downtown Farmers’ Market throughout the summer. Monument staff will be available to help you plan your next visit to the monument, answer questions, provide information about daily ranger-guided talks and walks and Junior Ranger programs for kids aged 5-12.

Colorado National Monument Annual Park Passes and Interagency Senior Passes will be for sale at the booth. Additionally, several specialty products from the Colorado National Monument Association’s store located in the Saddlehorn Visitor Center will be available for purchase. Among the featured items are the new colorful Colorado National Monument T-shirts and ball caps, vests, the 2011 Colorado National Monument Centennial Calendar, Centennial pins, and other new Centennial commemorative items.

The monument’s booth is located near the intersection of 4th and Main Streets. The booth is easy to find. Just look for the bright green canopy and the park ranger staff.

Independence Monument

Independence Monument is all that remains of a continuous ridge that once formed a wall between Monument and Wedding Canyons. A cap of durable Kayenta rock has protected this picturesque 450 feet (137 meters) high monolith from the relentless erosion that carried away the surrounding rock.
