My first view of the Monument was from well above its top. Not from the top of the Grand Canyon, but just from the top of the drainage. It must be a hundred metre descent from the top of Mounument Creek drainage to the bottom and the top of the monument is quite a ways from the top of the drainage. Monument Creek capsite was quite good for some night photos - it wasn't too far a walk to some very good views like this. The peaks of the North Rim are in the background.
