A 260-ton crane from Girardi's Towing set up on Rim Rock Drive in Colorado National Monument pulls a van out of Red Canyon on Thursday. The van went off the road Jan. 21 and landed on a rock ledge 120 feet below the roadway and 180 feet above the canyon floor. Traffic between the east entrance to the monument and the turnoff to DS Road was stopped for about an hour while the crane was en route to the removal site. SLIDE SHOW, VIDEO
