Colorful Travels:

Colorful Colorado and beyond…

Gateway Auto Museum

We recently took a trip to Grand Junction to visit Mesa State. My oldest daughter is graduating high school this year…yikes! So, it’s been all about college tours lately.

A little over an hour outside Grand Junction is Gateway, CO. Situated in Gateway Canyons, it’s a small town with next to nothing but a spa/resort and this beautiful auto museum.

A room worthy of a $3.24 million car

We stopped at the general store to refuel before heading back to Grand Junction. If you are a classic car lover, or married to one, this out of the way stop is worth the trip.
