Grand Junction - "Colorado As You Were Promised"
By: Bob Fagan/World's Best Golf Destinations
When visiting Grand Junction, be sure to bring your gear and sunscreen. One fella recently was recorded doing seven, yes seven different sports on one March day. Illustrative of just some of the area’s outdoor activities, he began snowmobiling on Grand Mesa, the World’s largest flat top mountain (also great for cross-country skiing). Then he followed that by skiing (or snowboarding) at Powderhorn Mountain Resort and road cycling from the mountaintops to the riverside plateaus adjoining vineyards (remember Colorado’s Wine Country!). Next like him, you can motocross or ATV along the flat desert lands north of the City and don’t miss the many mountain biking trails. Afterwards, you can jet boat, raft, or float on the river. Finally our hero was wakeboarding (or do you want to do stand-up paddle boarding?). Some call Grand Junction the best biking town in country for its variety, beauty, and events!
