This edition of Relocating to Colorado’s Grand Valley magazine marks our 5th year of publication! The magazine was created to show just how beautiful the Grand Valley is and what a wonderful place it is to call home. My husband, four boys and I have enjoyed the Colorado National Monument for short day hikes. We love that in an hour we can be surrounded by aspen trees on the Grand Mesa for weekend camping trip. And we are perfectly content sitting on our back patio where views of the Monument, Bookcliffs and the Mesa surround us. Our teens can ride bikes “around town” and head down to the local fishing and swimming spot, Snooks Bottom on the Colorado River. The boys have learned to ski and snowboard at Powderhorn Resort, just 45 minutes away. We enjoy the small town feel of farmers markets and parades on Main Street, but are lucky enough to have some big city perks such as great healthcare, sports organizations, and really good restaurants. I hope Relocating to Colorado’s Grand Valley not only entices you to live here, but that the magazine serves as a helpful tool when making your move to this area. With Love, Brook Calhoon
