Delta, a small town on the western side of the Rockies known as "City of Murals," is located about halfway between Grand Junction and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado. The downtown area has over twenty buildings that are listed on the local, state and national historic register. A number of local artists have painted murals depicting historic scenes on several of these older buildings. During a recent fly-and-drive roadtrip, Gerald Thurman visited Delta and captured images of several of these murals. Touring guides to Delta's murals can be picked up at the Delta Visitor center located at 2250 Highway 50 in downtown Delta. Additional attractions are listed here.
