The grand valley includes these cities. Grand Junction, Fruita, Palisade, Delta. It is amazing since going west it goes 250 km.[kilometers.] even stretches to Price, Utah. In fact it was once covered in ocean. In 1930 the Colorado river was named the grand river and that’s how the grand valley got its name. Inside the Grand Valley the Gunnison River and the Colorado River come together, Those two rivers may be the remanders of the sea that came and left years ago.

Constructive forces
This is the grand valley it is made out of sandstone and more, it is part of the Plateau. The grand valley is part of Utah and the people who live in the valley are happy because in Utah it mostly desert. The grand valley has four types of cites in them one is palisade Montrose, Fruita, and the greatest Grand Junction.

Destructive forces to the valley.
The destructive forces to the Grand Valley are Erosion and flood. According to the hand out in the folder it states that most of the Grand Valley is eroded from tilted Mancos Shale. I have also found that flooding has also formed the Valley with a big winter snow pack in the mountains and a GRAND Valley.

I have also found that flooding has also formed the Valley with a big winter snow pack in the mountains and a quick spring warm up, you could get another flooding like in 1980 that made a big huge difference to that plan. There are wild life and great trails.
