Stone Mountain Village Delta, CO Real Estate Information. This is the place that once you get here you don't want to leave. There are one and two story models available. There has been very little fair market real estate activity in the subdivision this year. Although the area has been hit hard with foreclosures. Hopefully that activity has slowed down, and there haven't been any recent REO activity.       Stone Mountain Village is a newer subdivision on the north side of Delta, CO. It's nestled at the base of Grand Mesa. This is a great choice for those that want to live in a smaller community, but work in Grand Junction or Montrose. Highway 50 access is easy and less than one mile from the neighborhood. This location is also convenient to shopping.       Right now there is only one a...

Confluence Park in the Fall...Delta, Colorado. Anytime is a good time to take a walk through Confluence Park, but there's something magical about the fall, and there's still time to enjoy the beautiful fall colors. There's about five miles of trails through the park. You can take a leisurely stroll or go for a workout. A lot of wildlife can be spotted in the park. This is a wooded oasis in the city limits. A lot of the trails follow the river through the woods and some of them circle the lake.                                   On the day I was there, a storm was trying to come in. It made for some great lighting effects and this wonderful reflection picture. Confluence Lake takes up about 60 acres of the 265 acre park. It's stocked with trout during the summer season, and other species...

Oh the Absurdity of it All...It's Not Even Halloween. This is the sight at my local Walmart store. I couldn't believe it when I saw these tress all set up. I took this picture a week ago. I was shopping for Halloween when these trees jumped out and scared me. While I can believe our retailers are already thinking ahead to Christmas, I can't believe they are already pushing it on us. I need to ease into the Christmas season in my own traditional way. First I like to celebrate Halloween, then move on to Thanksgiving and then think about Christmas. Don't get me wrong...I love the Christmas season, but I guess I was raised a bit differently, and I like to celebrate the other events as they come up. Call me silly, or even old fashioned, but I'm not ready to start thinking about Christmas jus...
