Hundreds of riders took part in the 19th annual Rose Hill Rally this morning. A 50K ride took riders into Fruita and the 100k went to Highline Lake State Park. Both bike tours started and finished at Canyon View Park. The rally is a benefit for the Rose Hill Hospitality House, a service of St. Mary’s Medical Center that provides lodging to patients and family members residing outside Mesa County. In 2014, almost 2,000 guests stayed at Rose Hill. Rose Hill Hospitality House runs entirely off donations from the community. 

Putting park in habitat just cuckoo, city says

Grand Junction is calling out to have Las Colonias Park carved out of any lands set aside by the federal government for the threatened Western yellow-billed cuckoo. In a similar vein, the Tamarisk Coalition has asked for a free hand to attack the invasive plant where it grows on riverbanks considered important to the bird’s recovery.
