Last weekend, we spent a few days touring/camping around the Islands and Needles Districts of Canyonlands N.P. This shot was taken at sunset a couple miles form Grand View Point. The photographers add a sense of scale to the landscape.

I'd heard of the Paint Mines several years ago from fellow photographer Bob Volpe, but had never investigated beyond that until recently.
The Paint Mines are a cluster of eroded "hoodoos", similar to Bryce Canyon in Utah. They are located near Calhan, CO on Paint Mines Rd (what else?), just off the Calhan Highway south of town. They are now part of the El Paso County Parks system.
Trails lead all through the formations and you could easily spend half a day photographing.
