East of Grand Junction, there is a mountain called "The Grand Mesa." It is the largest flattop mountain in the world (at least that's what people around here tell me). The last two Sundays in September are called Color Sunday on the Mesa. We wanted to get out and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful colors, so we drove up to the ski resort and hiked along the cat trails (I'm not sure if that's a technical term, but that's what Jackson calls them). My favorite picture of the day is below.
