Fruita, Colorado

On this page are my early photos of Fruita, Grand Junction and much of the Grand Valley in Mesa County. I visted twice in September and then moved to Fruita on October 2012. Some of these pictures are from my first week here.

Me at the Colorado Welcome Center in Fruita. It's just south of Exit 19 on Interstate 70.
