"So you skinny dipped where you grew up huh? Here in Grand Junction we would run naked through the tunnels on the Colorado National Monument at Night!"

I saw this on one of those E-cards on Facebook and about died laughing!

While I don't advocate doing stripping down in to your birthday suit, but I definitely remember "other people" doing it when I was a kid!

I also remember swimming illegally at the non-existent "Black Bridge," and dodging law enforcement so we wouldn't get yelled at.

Looking back I couldn't figure out why they didn't just leave us alone, I mean we weren't bothering anyone, but of course my teenage brain did not take into account the risk and dangers of these actions.

  • Having bonfires in the dessert.
  • Cruising North Ave.

What are some of your fond memories of growing up in Grand Junction?
