The Western Slope

June 11, 2015

To distinguish themselves from Denver and It’s sprawl, they refer to this area as “the western slope”.  It does have a more western feeling with cowboy hats and pistols on the hip.  If you include Durango and Mesa Verde, we have been in Western Colorado for over three weeks.  I went fishing in the Gunnison River, in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.  I actually caught a fish, which is probably the norm as this is “Gold Medal” water.

Yesterday we saw wild horses and Leslie saw her first Bald Eagles.  Today we are looking down on Grand Junction from the Colorado National Monument.

    Ah, the Western Slope. If they could secede from Denver and a few other parts of E. Colorado, they surely would.
    Glad you made it to the Colorado Monument – a beautiful jewel of W Colorado.
