bold pioneers

As diverse as the towering canyons and sandstone Book Cliffs that the valley was carved out of, our economic base is full of vibrancy, color and variety. The largest metro between Denver and Salt Lake City, Grand Junction supports numerous government workers, a robust healthcare industry and the largest school district on the Western Slope.
