Here are some pictures from Rifle Falls State Park in Rifle, Colorado. It's located on Interstate 70, about ninety miles east of the Utah border. It had taken us three days of pretty hard driving to get as far as Rifle, so we decided to stay over an extra day to rest up a bit and visit beautiful Rifle Falls.

The park is small, with a few camping sites available. The park's main feature is Rifle Falls, and it was definitely worth seeing.
The boy in the red shirt to the left of the falls lends some perspective to the picture.

A quick internet search helped me to identify this little critter as a Banded Woolybear Caterpillar. We encountered it along the Rifle Falls Trail.
That's all for now, but stay tuned.
