Went down Escalante Canyon today off HWY 50 between Delta and Grand Junction. Very interesting and I highly recommend this.

I always wanted to check that area out when we lived in Grand Junction, but sadly never made it there. Looks beautiful!

I made this day excursion while having a near-death experience from a virulent allergy to chenopods, and two different anti-histamines. Couldn't open my eyes for more than a couple of seconds, but what I saw was fascinating.

Now that I have a Jeep, I've decided to visit all the roads my sportscar wouldn't make it on. I have NO desire to travel the "tourist Jeeps roads", but to me places like CR 2, CR 5, CR 7, Owl Creek Pass, Last Dollar, are more interesting. I'll post pics.

IF it ever stops raining, I'll take the top off my Jeep too and enjoy the sunshine, if that ever returns. It's been pouring here ever afternoon. Under a flood watch now.

We had an absolutely beautiful day in Grand Junction yesterday. Not a moment of sunshine, with a steady rain that continued throughout most of the day, along with a high temperature of 70, though for most of the day the temp was in the 60s. One of the most pleasant days of the summer thus far.

..........................................Actual......Normal
Yesterdays precipitation:.........0.59 in.....0.03
Month to date precipitation:.....1.14........0.75
Year to date precipitation:.......5.93........5.65

This brings the annual precipitation total to +.28 for the year

The mean temperature for the month of August thru the 25th is running 1.06 degrees below normal. This is only the 3rd summer month ( June, July, August ) in my 8 summers of living in Grand Junction with a mean temperature below normal.

Flash Flood Warning yesterday and again this afternoon here. I love it that we're forced to watch Denver news stations who totally ignore the western slope, but if someone sneezes in Weld County, they're all over it with that stupid beep and crawl.

ANYWAY.... the Labor Day parade and rodeo is this weekend here. Good fun

At least you get Colorado TV. Down here in the 4 corners, we get to watch Albuquerque news & weather. Nothing at all from Denver or anywhere else in CO.

Grand Junction, for the small market that it is, has ABC, NBC, & CBS affiliate stations with their own local news and weather.

I know, but Delta and Ouray County residents are forced to watch stupid Denver news.

I can't help but feel like Durango would be far better served by GJ stations than it currently is by Albuquerque. We're certainly closer to GJ and at the very least, there is a community of interest with the western slope.
