Independence Mountain View, Colorado National Monument

The campground that I was staying in is to the left of that bulge(Saddlehorn) in the upper left. You can drive and hike out onto that ridge in the upper part of this image. If you look real close at the outer end of that ridge you can se the feature this park calls The Window. It is actually the beginnings of a true arch that you walk over.


There are many rim trails you can easily hike working back to the Visitors Center ( just below the Saddlehorn) in which you can shoot looking back at this locations. Great shooting from there both morning and evening at that time of year.
