Remember back in the day when you'd send friends and family a postcard from your vacation? Probably not, but that didn't stop us from finding some rare and vintage postcards from Grand Junction and Western Colorado.

There was a time when communicating with your family and friends took more time than snapping a photo and sharing it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You actually had to hand-write a little note on a piece of paper with a photo of your latest adventure, place a stamp on it and mail it out. All with the hopes the postcard reached its destination before you ended your trip.

Lucky for us, the interwebs is full of vintage postcards from years past. Take a look at these postcards from Grand Junction and Western Colorado.
