I was giving Redlands another look recently. 7th St historic district north of downtown... how far north? From google street view the streets off of 7th look alright. I'd more likely be Redlands. Or way further out.

Colorado Monument is a nice nearby resource.

I find the Bookcliffs interesting when you get into them but the far away view doesn't do much for me. Mt. Garfield, eh, not really a fan.

Redlands and Redlands Mesa are two different places. FYI.
Where do you access the Bookcliffs?

"Redlands and Redlands Mesa are two different places. FYI."

Ok. Didn't know they were considered separate. Both unincorporated areas and not that far from each other though, right?

I know about the golf course but I don't play that anymore.

No, they are both in the city limits of Grand Junction. Redlands is more lowland, farm/horse country with typical suburban neighborhoods. Redlands Mesa sits up high and incorporates the not only the golf course, but a diverse group of neighborhoods nestled among canyons and mesas. There are some city parks up there as well, like Shadow Lake. See my photo above.

Huh. I didn't think they were in GJ. I got a different impression from things like this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redlands,_Colorado
But it does look like one of the better areas to live.



I clicked on some of your thumbnail pics before but not all of them. The thumbnails are kinda small for my eyesight and that one didn't jump out to me. I looked at the Shadow Lake pic just now though. Thanks for the pics and the info.

I've been to GJ 10 (maybe plus) times in past but mostly going thru pretty quickly to other places.
