"Quaint little crossroads"? I wouldn't describe it that way. But putting a positive spin on things to get folks to try it... okay.

Why would Outside need/want folks to try it? I think it was the authors view.

I lived and worked in GJ and have family there. It's tough to find good employment there if you're not in the medical industry. I've heard plenty of negative comments about the town, so many that some call it Junktown. It's generally very conservative and was a Trump stronghold in the elections.

It has a pretty mild climate compared to the mountain towns, but gets horrible inversions in the winter. It's a good central location for a lot of outdoor activities. If I ever moved back (which I wouldn't), I would live in Palisade, Fruita, or the Redlands. The rest of the town is kind of blah. In spite of having a college, there really isn't much to do in terms of cultural activities.

Itís changing...rapidly. The junktown moniker is from years ago. You sound negative.
