Tomorrow, President Barack Obama will visit Grand Junction for his next healthcare town hall, where he'll likely encounter folks like the ones in the video accessible here, caught in action during a GJ rally in late July. (Really dug the sign that read, "D.N.C. Lies: Grandma Dies.") But in the unlikely event he has any free time, he should check out some highlights from in and around the community, my hometown. Obviously, the Colorado National Monument, seen above, is a must, as are the four other proposed stops on view after the jump.
