Grand Mesa

The Grand Mesa to quote the brochure " is known as the largest flattop mountain in the world". The Grand Mesa is about 30 miles from Grand Junction. It includes a bunch of lakes, a ski resort and offers a wide variety of outdoor activities, including camping, snowmobiling, fishing, hunting, etc. We took a drive over the Mesa a couple of weeks ago. Most of it was covered with snow but interesting and 10,000 feet altitude.

Coming down the other side, lots of quaking aspens and big mountains.
