Travel Tips for Grand Junction
If you show up in late summer, make sure to visit Orchard Mesa and buy some peaches. This fruit stand is Ernest and Ruth Ball's on G Road in Palisaide... just outside Grand Junction actually. The peaches are so pretty. One of the attached images is digitally alterred.
Green River-Crstal Geyser
This cold water geyser is located about 9 miles south of town and you go through the old Government missile testing site to get to it. The trip is fascinating, and the geyser spews out every 12-16 hours. I did not wait around that long to find out. I did see a trickle of adjacent water coming out of the ground; not a geyser, though. The travertine formation of the rippled layers of minerals is due to those minerals coming to the surface and gradually flowing into the various layers shown today.
The Western Slope
"My Wake Up Dog"
I used to go over to Grand Junction to visit my grandmother. During one visit I was sleeping soundly on a spare bed and everyone decided Grethen would do a good job of waking me up. (I'll get a picture of Grand Junction on this front page, this is place holder.)
