Tired of the Hustle and Bustle?

The Redlands community outside of Grand Junction in Western Colorado is a wonderful alternative to the chaos of any city. This small community boast a large retiree population due to it’s sunny, dry, climate. Many would say it has an upscale western flavor.

Grand Junction is situated in a valley on the western slope of the Rocky Rocky Mountains. Surrounded by the Colorado National Monument, the Grand Mesa and the Bookcliffs means that severe weather changes are blocked and even winter days are warm, however inversion can bring long periods of cold air that gets trapped in the valley.

Near the Colorado River the landscape is covered with Popular trees and lush greenery, while the surrounding area is arid and covered in pinyon and juniper.
