The western side of Colorado
Just down the road from Grand Junction is Gateway Colorado
Population 23 as of 2021
In the 50s and 60s Gateway was the home to uranium miners. Tough old bastards! I know because my grandfather was one of them.
Today the Gateway resort and spa is the main attraction.
Surrounded by the vast lands of the Uncompahgre Plateau, Piñon Mesa and La Sal Mountains
