Browns Canyon Designated National Monument

Although it has nothing to do with the sport of baseball, and rather more to do with the sports of fishing and whitewater rafting, when our "Google Alert" goes off, it goes off.

Therefore may I present to you, the beauty and splendor that is Browns Canyon:

In looking at the history of this Colorado natural wonder, there is no mention anywhere of why it was named "Browns".  Lost in the mists of time apparently.  But since the St. Louis Browns were the closest team to Colorado for the first 100 years of major league baseball, we are going to assume it was named in honor of our Browns.

Browns Canyon Colorado was declared a National Monument by Pres. Obama on February 19, 2015.
