Devil’s Kitchen & the Milky Way V
The Milky Way rises above Devil’s Kitchen in Colorado National Monument. Devil's Kitchen is an outcrop of uneroded Wingate Sandstone that stands like a fortress above the surrounding canyon floor; the rock walls form a horseshoe shape around a roomy space in the middle. A few pillars of sandstone stand alone marking where higher walls once stood. Colorado National Monument towers over the Colorado River and forms the southwest border to Grand Valley. (The light painting the sandstone comes from Grand Junction, Colorado, down canyon.
