So close, yet so far away.  That's SW Colorado for those of us living in Moab.  Towns like Grand Junction are more a part of our economy than is Salt Lake City.  The mountains.......oh, the and though I can see them on the distant eastern skyline when traversing SE Utah I don't venture over there as often as I think I will now.  The last couple of falls have been excellent for color.  Thousands flock to Ouray, Telluride, Durange and the like to absorb the golden rays of sunshine and the golden light of fall aspens.  And I shall follow.
