Well done!
It's called Monument Rock. Either they named it after the town, or more likely the town gets its name from the rock.

I was in the Springs in my cage today. Best view of it was right at the Monument exit as you head south. A little harder to pick out today with all of the shrub oaks at full peak colors.

Careful out there. I got a very expensive performance award on Daniels Park Rd this summer. The country club crowd along there has complained enough that the sherriff is regularly planted there to keep bikes at 30mph.

5 performance awards my whole life. 3 in the last 5 years in DougCo, in the cage, not the bike. Gotta watch it here every day, especially the Daniels Park Road which is where I go the first of the 3.
