Colorado National Monument, Colorado – The coldest New Year party

Colorado National Monument close to Grand Junction that we visited earlier in November celebrates its 100th birthday. There is a big party on New Year’s Eve where all citizens are invited. Let’s go. Despite -20° C / below 0° F many people come. Rangers light fires where we can roast complimentary marshmallows. I dislike marshmallows, but that doesn’t matter. They are sweet, and this provides energy to stand the cold. The fires do not particularly warm us up; the heat fizzles out in space. Hot chocolate and cider are available and as highlight of the event there is a lavish firework in front of stony scenery. Happy New Year!
