I was 21 years old when I first visited Grand Junction.  I remember driving down North Avenue from the east end, and I drove all the way through town taking time to check out this place.  It didn’t take me long to feel at home.  And 45 years later, I still do.  

My husband, Steve, and I have made our home in Grand Junction. When possible, we take advantage of our beautiful outdoors, biking in the spring and summer, and, when time permits, skiing in the winter.
