From the valley, this doesn't look like a mesa (my geology professor said it is more accurately referred to as a plateau). It is close to 11,000 ft high and thus has a very different climate than that of the valley. The visitor center is open from Memorial Day (some years, they have to delay it) till the last Sunday...

One of the pretest places on earth. Over 200 fresh water lakes and resevoirs. Once on top you can see for miles. Breathtaking.

I look out from my house daily and can assess the weather, the amount of snow-fall in the mountains, upcoming meteorological weirdnesses, and often don't assess anything except to marvel in this brooding behemoth beginning 15 miles east and rising to 5,000' higher. A presence, an island of temperate forested-ness rising from the sun-baked oven of the Grand Valley desert,... More

There are many places to camp or rent cabins. Cross country and snowshoe paths are groomed nicely. Ski resort is very popular. There are condos to rent... More
