Devils Canyon Trail

This morning Papa/Bill and I visited the McInnis Canyons National Conservation, Kodels and Devils Canyon area. Today we hiked the Devils Canyon Trail. A beautiful hike filled with amazing views around every curve.

This was the perfect hike for us today, because I had already taken my two-mile morning walk, so I wasn’t looking for a long, strenuous hike.

The hike started out with luscious green shade trees at the beginning of the trail.

Then, the further you went along the trail, the more you are drawn in towards the amazing huge rock formations.

Some people love to watch clouds and see what they remind them of, we love looking at unique rock formations and try to decide what figures, faces, or scenes, they look like to us. And even if you don’t see any faces, figures, or scenes, the beautiful multi-colors within the rocks are amazing.

If you look closely, almost every rock tells its own story. Some look like they have eyes or faces watching you.

Papa/Bill named this rock “the village people” because of the long white strips it has flowing down, formed by years of wind and water. He said it looks to him like a bunch of people, and I agreed.

This rock formation Papa/Bill named “the whole village”.  He said it looks like it would be where the village people lived…

We  didn’t come up with a name for this next rock formation, but we both thought it was very cool looking with its multi-layers at the top. It sort of looks like the top of the rock collapsed down on itself creating four separate levels.

But my absolute favorite rock formation of the day, was this one that I named “rock horse”. It looks to me like the side view of a horse in a sitting position. It’s head is bent down, I can see one of its eyes, and at the top of its head, I see an ear. I just think it is the coolest rock formation I’ve seen yet!

Just another fabulous day, in our temporary neighborhood, here in Fruita, Colorado.

Stay Tuned!

    The rock formation we didn’t name after looking at it, should be called the pancake stack.
    Had a great time on our hike today,more trails to come.

      Oh, yeah, that would be a good name for that particular rock formation. I’m looking forward to many more hikes in this area before we head home at the end of the month. XoXo
