What Bert Has To Say About Grand Junction Metro Area

Grand Junction is a small but rapidly growing town on the western desert slopes of the Rockies. It has become “discovered,” first as a pleasant alternative to Colorado Front Range hustle and bustle, particularly for retirees, more recently from migrants from all over the West. The climate is sunnier, drier, and generally more pleasant than other Colorado metropolitan areas and it has a well-preserved, western-town flavor.
