4th of July at the Colorado Monument

On the 4th of July. There is an opportunity for people to climb Independence Rock. That is the rock behind the guys in the picture below. It is something that was started way back when and is a 4 th of July tradition. It costs money to go, but they have professional rescue people all along the way and they help people up and down. Apparently you don't have to have alot of rock climbing experience.
John, Mark and Jay with scope and binoculars.
Mark and Independence Rock. He wants to climb it next year...wants someone to do it with him. Anyone interested???

The rock and Neola

Trying to get a closer look.
Jay took the picture through the spotting scope. They are raising the flag. As they raised the flag a trumpet played the National Anthem.

People on the rock waiting for their turn climb.
