This is definitely a drive anyone would enjoy. Plenty of places to stop, hike and take photos. Excellent backdrops for unique family photos.

This flat-topped mountain features hundreds of beautiful lakes surrounded by aspens or evergreen forests. In July, meadows near Lands End Road are blanketed with columbines, larkspur, bluebells, paintbrush, and other wildflowers. In autumn, the golden aspen woods around Powderhorn Resort and Mesa Lakes are spectacular. Drive over the Mesa road in a few hours, camp in a forest service campground,... More

It was hard for me to realize how beautiful Mother Nature is here in the U.S. Breathtaking scenery and many photo opportunities. The road we were on had many turn outs to accommodate the travelers. Have your camera ready and all the batteries charged!!!!

Went up to the Mesa to go fishing but there was still too much snow. Went to the lake and saw fishermen catching some big trout. Beautiful surroundings. and probably great in the summer for hiking.

It's really simple. If you're anywhere near Grand Junction, Colorado just go and spend a few hours driving around the Grand Mesa and see the Colorado National monument. Words can't describe how amazingly beautiful this is. If you are driving, stop at the lookouts, and best keep your eyes on the road in between! The Visitor's center has souveniers, snacks... More

This entire area is filled with reds and Browns at every turn. The occasional tree or shrub adds a welcome touch of green. Heights and vistas counteract each other. If you are uneasy about being 'on the edge' this is the place to go.

The Grand Mesa is full of wildlife and peace. Awesome place to hunt, fish, camp and just get away from the city.

I had the privilege of living on the slopes of the Grand Mesa for several years. If there has ever been such a thing as a multi-use area this is it. In winter, there are areas for snowshoeing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. The North face of the Mesa is home to Powderhorn Ski Resort, with great runs from beginner... More
