Grand Junction Terms You Need To Know To Pass As A Local


Just because you live here, doesn’t mean you are from here. So, here is a list of terms you would only know if you are a true Grand Junctionite.

These words and terms may not mean a lick of difference to most people, but it is a great test to see if someone really knows Grand Junction.

Uranium Downs

Remembering Grand Junction: Horse Racing at Uranium Downs
Robert Grant

The name for the race track at the Mesa County Fairgrounds.


Junk Tree on Gunny Loop
Waylon Jordan

A not-so-complimentary nickname we picked up some time ago.


Dalton Trumbo 1
Waylon Jordan

That would James Dalton Trumbo. Screenwriter and novelist who unfortunately was blacklisted by Hollywood. Bryan Cranston portrayed him the movie ‘Trumbo.’

Jam Ranch

Waylon Jordan

Those four days in June for all heck breaks loose and we welcome some of the biggest acts in Country music.


JUCO World Series

Stands for the Junior College World Series held annually at Sulpizio Stadium. Actually, quite an honor to host this seven-day tournament.

Mesa State College

In August 2011 the name of the school was officially changed to Colorado Mesa University. Although the parking ramp remains the same.
