Colorado National Monument
“The Colorado National Monument owes its very existence to the inexhaustible commitment of a man named John Otto. Otto came to the Grand Valley in 1906. He was awestruck by the natural beauty of the surrounding area and the land that is now the Colorado National Monument. Upon the inception of his discovery of these spectacular canyons, Otto embarked on a nonstop effort to establish the area as a national monument.”   From page 49, Grand Junction Hiking Guide
