something different from the landscapes, but also from Colorado. Delta, Colorado is known as the city of murals. I saw at least 7 different ones just from the road. This one is particularly striking as the city created a small park in front of it for people to sit and enjoy the wall scene. The real street is to the left of this mural.
Delta, Colorado is part of the Western slope of the Rockie Mountains. It has a populatin of about 9,000 people and is at the 5,000 ft. elevation level. Delta was built as a trading post for the Ute Indian tribe and early settlers. Fort Uncompahgre was built in 1828. The town is in the Uncompagre Forest. Uncompagre is an Ute Indian name meaning 'the water (river) made red'.
The town was named because of its location on the delta, where the Gunnison River and the Uncompahgre River intersect.
The murals were created from an urban renewal project begun in 1986.
There are murals in all scattered around the town.
