As we had a few days before our next reservation – Arches National Park, – we decided to stop in an area we had only passed through before, Grand Junction, Colorado. While we were there, we took a stroll down Main Street and discovered Grand Junction’s “Art on the Corner.”
While at Grand Junction, we also visited Colorado National Monument and The Museum of Western Colorado.
The name “Grand” is derived from the Grand River, the name for the upper Colorado River before it was renamed in 1921. “Junction” is from the joining of the Colorado and Gunnison rivers, just southwest of the downtown area.
