The Grand Valley, named for the Colorado River—once known as the “Grand River”—that runs through it, is located on the Western Slope of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Averaging 4,700 feet in elevation and roughly twelve miles in width, the arid valley stretches some thirty miles between the towns of Palisade and Mack.
