Delta is a small town of 6,400 residents located in the west-central portion of Colorado. This beautiful little town is nestled between the high alpine meadows of the Grand Mesa and West Elk Mountains and the red rock canyons of the Uncompahgre Plateau. The town is blessed with a beautiful climate and some very unique attractions. Confluence Park offers a lake with fishing and picnic areas and miles of hiking trails. A state-of-the-art recreation center in Delta features a full sized Olympic pool, tennis courts, volleyball and basketball courts, therapy pool, weight room and more. Devil's Thumb Golf Course is located in the foothills north of Delta and is described as a "prairie style" golf course. It is set against a stunning backdrop of mountains and canyons with the Grand Mesa to the north and the San Juans, West Elks, Black Canyon and Uncompahgre Plateau to the south. These are undoubtedly some of Western Colorado's most unique geological features. Delta is also known as "The City of Murals." Historic Highway 50 is the Main Street in town and eleven murals and four sculptures created by local artists can be seen along this route by taking a walking tour, or by stopping in your car at different locations along Main Street. One of the other most unique attractions in Delta not to be missed is the Fort Uncompahgre Living History Museum, which is an opportunity for visitors to glimpse the area's past at the turn of the 20th century.

Delta Weather & Climate

West-central Colorado has a four-season climate that is either semi-arid or alpine, depending on location. Places that are just a short distance apart can have different weather. Valley areas have a semi-arid climate, while the mountains have an alpine climate. The wettest season in western Colorado is usually winter, while June is the driest month. Summers are mild in the mountains, sometimes with a high of only around 60 degrees F. Thunderstorms are possible, and sometimes cause the temperature to drop dramatically. At the higher elevations, winters are cold with lots of snow, but with abundant sunshine in between storms. Lower areas on western slope of the Rockies have summer temperatures similar to those on the plains - hot and dry.
