You have the best of everything right there in Junction.
The Flat Tops, Moab and the best peaches within several light years in any direction.

And a low grade sunburn all summer long no matter how my sunscreen I put on my Irish ***.. Your right about everything around the valley but you forgot about the kick butt vineyards and free wine tastings!

Been thinking of Grand Junction as a retirement location. Tell me more. Are the summer temps bad?

Also been looking at Craig CO. Or Rifle. A little more elevation and cooler maybe.

100+ in the summer is pretty regular I think. Pretty cold winters too, but 2 hours from Moab...

They aren't to bad. It was kind of hot this year even getting up to 107 once. Most if the time its a summer of high 90's to low 100's. The nights cool down quite a bit and that makes it better. You can take off to the Grand Mesa when its 105 in the valley and it will be 70 on top so that's nice if you like to camp. I think the fishing sucks but everyone else thinks its great. I cant stand the taste of trout, and the water is kind of cold for anything else, the catfish don't get that big but the walleye are pretty good. The hunting is getting harder with a tag draw that makes it hit or miss. Its a nice place to live that's not to big and not to small with lots of smaller towns around to explore. I'm not a fan of Rifle when I have to go work up there and Craig/Meeker suck making me want to drive past as fast as the law allows so that I don't get the urine smell on me. Delta, Montrose, and Olathe are kinda cool farming towns but if I had my choice I think Gunnison would be a great place to retire if you could be a snow bird. Other then that its not to bad in the winter if a inversion doesn't set in. If it does then it can get below 0 for a bit but its not a big deal. Actually its about the same as Moab's terrain with less trails to play on.

Yep Moab is close and we have some nice trails around here too. We have a Powder horn ski resort about 45 minutes away with not much for lines or traffic. The Grand Mesa for cool camping with lots of trees and alpine meadows and the Uncompahgre National Forest is great as well! Actually it a great place to live.


I haven't got on the Billings Canyon trail because I don't think im setup for it at all but you can find this kind of trail around the area.
I love Lew's YJ!

My wife takes a picture almost every evening of the sunsets on our property, dead West facing. At some point her plan is to produce actual photos for an album. So, Michael, I think yes may be the answer.

The great uniting factor is that we are all jeepers at heart and are willing to help each other out even if its just a little. That's what the jeep wave is all about: community. The wave is the tip of the iceberg.

I'm sure someone would buy a book of sunsets of "insert location here". She's onto something.

I know the stores are littered with stuff. I was at an art walk in Bend and there were photographers(digital artists) selling stuff for way more than I'd expect anyone to pay for it. Like $500 for poster size. Where do I find the people who buy that? Hahaha.

Done.


These horses and mules have been roaming around living their lives since the 1800's without any problem or intervention.
