If you're like me, you rarely fly, preferring to drive instead. And if that's the case, it seems we are missing out on quite a spectacle.

Seeing Grand Junction from the air just gives more scope to it. You get to see the entire area laid out below you.

And as you get closer, the views are amazing. And this wonderful video shows you why it's called the Grand Valley. Just look at those mountains! And the views of the Monument are pretty cool too, as is the approach over Palisade along the Bookcliffs.

I hope you enjoy the video and if you have taken some good videos of the Grand Valley send em along, we can do a travelogue!
