5 Reasons To Use Grand Junction Trails – Especially In the Rain [VIDEO]

Grand Junction and the surrounding areas can expect rain on Tuesday. Should this keep you from enjoying Western Colorado’s awesome trails? HECK, NO! Now’s the time to get out and enjoy. Here are five reasons why.

The National Weather Service anticipates a chance of rain on Tuesday. These conditions could potentially put a crimp in a wide number of weekend plans.

Regardless of the weather, you should definitely get out and enjoy Western Colorado trails this weekend. Believe it or not, several benefits come with rainy conditions. Here are five that come to mind:

  1. Cooler temperatures.
  2. You can get in longer walks.
  3. You’ll see wildlife which would typically remain hidden during normal conditions. The owls on the Audubon Trail love to come out and take a bath during the rain. (see video below)
  4. With the thirsty ground we have around here, rain doesn’t always equal mud. Trails on Little Park soak up water like a sponge.
  5. You won’t have to clean your shoes.

(Sorry for the shaky camera. I was having a hard time that day.)

We don’t exactly get a tremendous amount of rain here in Western Colorado. When we do get it, barring the torrential cloudbursts we see from time to time, it can be a real treat. A scorching summer lays in store; you know it’s coming. Take advantage of a pleasant, rainy weekend. Make sure you get out and enjoy.
