Delta is located just west of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, at the confluence of the Gunnison and Uncompahgre Rivers. The National Forest Service has located the main office for the Gunnison, Uncompahgre and Grand Mesa National Forests in Delta.
In downtown Delta, the exteriors of seven buildings are being used by local artists as canvasses for murals depicting local businesses, history and Delta's natural surroundings. The photo to the left of this text is of one of those murals along Main Street.
I drove into Delta on a beautiful Sunday morning in early September. All through the downtown area the streets were filled with trees and flowerbeds in full blossom. It made downtown Delta look really inviting, and it's easy to see why Delta is a thriving, rapidly growing community.
Great architecture, also on Main Street in Delta
