Browns Canyon National Monument

This 22,000 acre national monument belongs to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the US Forest Service. The park is located near Salida, CO along the Arkansas River. We stopped here on our way west from Colorado Springs for a quick hike in the afternoon then stayed in a dispersed campsite on the southern end of the monument. We hiked the Turret Trail to a beautiful spot overlooking the river. Along the way we were rewarded with beautiful views of the Collegiate Peaks, a string of 14,000 foot mountains in the area.
