With a population of more than 60,000, Grand Junction is the largest city on Colorado's Western Slope. This photo looks northwest over the city, with the Colorado River hidden behind a strip of trees in the foreground. St. Mary's Hospital, one of the largest employers in the region, is the tall rectangular building at center, while the southern slopes of the Roan Plateau spread across the background.
