Whitewater Region of the Grand Valley

This area of the western slope of Colorado is known as the Whitewater region. It sits to the west of the Grand Mesa in the Grand Valley near Grand Junction. This panorama was taken with a drone and shows the lines and curves of this desert region from high above the landscape. This photograph was taken on a cool summer morning just a short drive from Grand Junction. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
