Default Colorado - There's No Place Like It

Advertise Here

I have been living on the Western Slope now for about 26 years. Why do I say there's no place like it? I used to drive over the road, so I have been in every state except North Dakota and Vermont. I was born in Ohio, raised in California, got married and lived in Tucson for about 9 years before coming here, and like I said, I've been everywhere (well nearly), and nothing compares to here!
What I love the most about Grand Junction is the natural beauty here.
The Grand Mesa is awesome! I can look at it whenever I go into my kitchen or backyard. I love to cruise my Harley all over this beautiful country.
Well, since I am new at this site and don't really have any experience with online forums, I wanted to introduce myself to other Coloradans, as well as anybody else who may have stumbled to this particular forum.
Have a great day every one!

I couldn't agree with you more! Born in California, lived in Indiana, Minnesota, Montana, Iowa, Missouri, Arizona, Idaho, and traveled to every state except Hawaii. I call Pagosa Springs home and we are at least 168 miles away from the closest interstate highway! We are five hours away from Denver, and 3 1/2 hours away from Albuquerque, NM. It is a beautiful mountain community with lots of independent minded people. Best kept secret in Colorado.

I loved living in Colorado (Telluride, Durango, Steamboat etc). The western slope has always been awesome.
I miss some of it, but don't miss the Front Range even slightly.
I love Wyoming more

I've lived in Crawford country for about 10 years after leaving SLC, UT because the gangs and traffic.

We bought 40 irrigated acres surrounded by big ranches. I love it out here, I can shoot out my back door, it's quit and clean living. I became good friends and neighbors with the ranches around us and offer my mechanical skills for trade to use of there equipment and land use for hunting.

We raise our own beef, pork and veggies. The West Elk Wilderness is just a few minuets away where we pack-in using mules and riding horses.

I think we're going to be here a while!!!

I have lived all over the world and in many States and found Colorado home for many years. It has some of the most diverse land of any State.

Used to be a big city boy and then I came to Colorado. I settled here after my military stint and have also ended up on the Western Slope. I was hesitant about it at first I would have rather been in the mountains(and to an extent I still do) but I really like the Mesa County area.

Currently in Junction too. Similar to living in the high desert communities in SoCal without the high taxes and BS gun laws.
