The Colorado National Monument is a beautiful geological display of towering red sandstone monoliths set against deep, sheer walled canyons which are dotted throughout the 20 thousand acres of the park. Here, in a desert landscape, there is a variety of wildlife sharing the area with those who enjoy hiking, biking, campfire programs, bird watching, camping and picnicking.
Mesa County, which is frequently referred to as the Grand Valley, is noted for its wide variety of agricultural produce, often boasting the best peaches money can buy. Mesa County's mild climate is a sharp contrast to the eastern slope of Colorado. Mesa County's residents enjoy mild winter temperatures with lows averaging only 14°F (-10°C) in January and the year-round low humidity is savored by all. Both conditions of moderate temperatures and lower humidity create perfect growing conditions for grapes. There are a number of area wineries and vineyards, many who offer interesting tours and delightful samples.
