There are so many things we take for granted in Grand Junction but here are five things I think we would really miss if they were gone.

I hear people complain all the time about Grand Junction, spewing out negative, unfounded comments. I realize the city isn't perfect, but what city is? But, for all that is wrong with Grand Junction, there's way more that is good and right.

I got to thinking about some of the things that we probably take for granted on a daily basis - things I think we would really miss if they were gone. The list certainly could be longer, but to get the conversation started I've narrowed my list down to five.
