Dwarfed by neighboring Grand Mesa, the Book Cliff Mountains still provide a dramatic look to western Colorado and eastern Utah’s landscape. This view of Mount Garfield, found nearby Grand Junction, represents the eastern end of the Book Cliff Range. Extending 2000 feet above the floor of the Grand Valley, Mount Garfield’s presence just begs to be climbed. Two separate trails lead to the top; both extremely steep, cluttered with loose rock, and become very slippery after a brief rain shower. Once the two mile assent is complete, climbers are rewarded with spectacular views of Grand Valley.
