Grand Junction Flights GuideGrand Junction Colorado, located in the Western part of the state, is the most populated city on the famed Colorado Western Slope. It is also located along the Colorado River. Grand Junction is famous for the Colorado National Monument, actually a series of beautiful canyons and mesas, as well as the Book Cliffs: cliff faces that resemble a stack of paper-backed books. Though Grand Junction is not particularly populated, its natural wonder is the major tourist draw.
Grand Junction is in the Westernmost region of Colorado, and is closer to many cities in Utah than it is to Denver, which is nearly four hours away by car. Colorado Springs is similarly a long car trip or a short flight. However, the beautiful Umcompahgre Forest is nearby, for those looking to take in more natural wonders, as well as the San Juan National Forest.
LIke the rest of Colorado, temperatures vary dramatically by season. In the winter, for example, temperatures frequently drop as low as 30 degrees, though snowfall can sometimes be minimal. In the summer, temperatures can climb, with July being the hottest month with temperatures in the 90s. Because Grand Junction's main draw is nature-driven tourism, weather is important. Therefore, visits in the fall and spring are recommended. In late March, the fruit orchards bloom, making it a particularly beautiful time for a visit. Similarly, the fall foliage in October can be breathtaking to witness.
