Scenes From Deltarado Days, Delta, Colorado. Activities have been going on all over Delta, Colorado since Thursday for the 2012 Deltarado Days. I think the most anticipated event is vendor village in Cleland Park. Here vendors from all over the area set up with different kinds of crafts and food booths. There's also a lot of activities for the kids, and in spite of the heat everyone looked like they were having a good time.   The 2012 Deltarado Days marks the 77th year for this event.

Scenes From The Delta, Colorado Rock and Gem Show. No one really remember how long the Delta, Colorado Rock and Gem Show has been going on, but I've been going to it for over 10 years. Here are some pictures from this year's event. The prominent blue stone is a mix of Azurite and Malachite. I'm thinking any of these crystals would make a really neat paperweight for my desk.                     The Bill Heddles Recreation Center hosts this show every year. Over 30 vendors from all over the Western Slope of Colorado had different displays of all different types of stones and gems. Some vendors even have their own mines where they get their favorite specimens. I learn something new every time I go to the show. One of the neatest things about this year's show was the black light room. You c...

Delta, Colorado, The Small Town With a Big Heart Introduces...Ms Judy Louise Hagen Carter. If her 3 stringed guitar doesn't get you, her aspirations for being the next President of The United States will. Yes, Ms Judy believes that she is going to end homelessness and hunger by being the next president. She can be seen on the Delta street corners singing out her praises to the Lord and her beliefs. She sings loud and proud and can be heard over the traffic noises as you are sitting at one of our few red traffic lights. She does this with only 3 strings on her guitar. It works, and is a sound only Judy can make. Today, Judy told me that she only sings true stories, and she wants to help the homeless people and fight harsh conditions for the elderly. Judy thinks she can do this by preachi...

Delta, Colorado, Known As The City Of Murals, Is A Small Town With A Big Heart. Delta is the largest city in Delta County with less than 10,000 people. But this small town boasts over 15 murals citywide. You can't miss them and will start to see them as soon as you enter the town. Meet Sam. He's there to greet you at the old time hardware store. Then there's Elliot. He likes to greet people from his favorite park bench. I named these characters myself. In 1986 Delta was awarded funds for an urban renewal project. Part of these funds were set aside to begin the mural project. Out of this effort has grown the Delta Public Art Committee, which is not only continuing the mural project, but also adding sculpture and other art. As you can see from these pictures, Delta demonstrates a strong l...

Down A Little Known Quiet Residential Street Lies A Piece of Delta County History. This tree is estimated to be over 200 years old, and it's the place where the Ute Indians were known to gather. In the 1800s the Ute Indians held council here in an attempt to keep peace between the Indians and white settlers. The tree is dedicated to Chief Ouray and his wife, Chipeta. Just off of Hwy 65 on G 86 Rd, Delta, Colorado stands the Council Tree. There is a sign on the highway to direct you to the tree. The Council Tree Pow Wow is named for this tree. This is an event held in the early fall at Delta's Confluence Park. Attending the Pow Wow is an amazing experience to truly learn about the Ute Native American Culture.
