The Colorado National Monument rises from the valley floor setting Grand Junction's beautiful backdrop. Most of us enjoy the view from afar, especially during the winter months -- because who wants to leave the comfort and warmth of their house. Don't fret, that's what the interwebs are for.

Taking a drive through the Monument during summer months can be harrowing, add a bit of snow and ice, and now you're in for a drive of a lifetime. No, thank you. Thanks to Instagram, we can check out the gorgeous winter scenery of the Colorado National Monument right from our couch.
