When People Think of Delta....


Dominating the northern sky is Grand Mesa, a 10,000+ foot flattop mesa that is actually the largest flattop mountain in the world. It gives us a good weather buffer keeping the valley mild, it provides a great view, and is a wonderful place to play. Tomorrow, I am going up there to watch a dog sled race! Look for pics next week.

Today is a theme day (when people think of my city, they think of...) among the City Daily Photo community. This month 135 (it's growing every month!) are participating. Please pay them a visit but keep in mind that not everyone lives on the same time zone.

I too have never heard of Delta or this flat topped mountain.

This theme day is so much fun. I get to learn about so many neat places!

I guess that big mesa would be a good wind block! Have fun dog sledding.

When I think of Delta, I think of the Grand Mesa...I've lived in Delta for 11 months between 1989 and 1990, and every morning the Grand Mesa was my first sight when I was waking up..
What a memory, thanks a lot for this picture.
