Pooling Light and Water in No Thoroughfare Canyon, Colorado National Monument, July 11, 2015 Coordinates for Google: N39 01.048 W108 38.974
One of my favorites hikes in Colorado is No Thoroughfare in the Colorado National Monument. Just 2 miles in, you'll see the famous first waterfall of this trail. It's not spectacular, but the solitude is unbroken if you hike on a weekday, and the heat is exhilarating. The Coordinates are here: N39 01.048 W108 38.974. Just plug those into Google and you'll see well enough where to place your camera for a similar photo. The light is almost always beautiful there toward evening. Hike with friends, and definitely take all the precautions recommended by the official information about the Monument.
