About

In a world thirsting for good news, The Montrose Monitor is refreshing as a cool Colorado breeze. The Monitor celebrates the people, events and energy of Colorado’s Western Slope. We guarantee that our content will be upbeat, intelligent, and informative.

We feature interviews with some of the most intriguing and accomplished individuals in our area. Most choose this extraordinary part of the world to spend time in the outdoors. Others have lived here their entire lives and the outdoors is their comfort zone.

Our area offers year-round recreation—something for everyone’s taste. From championship golf courses to Gold Ribbon fishing; from Telluride’s dazzling ski area to Ouray’s healing hot springs. Families help their children raise blue ribbon animals to show at the county fairs, teaching them values that cannot be learned in any other way. Art thrives through the Montrose Public Art Experience (PAX) which funds sculpture throughout the Montrose historic downtown district. Each summer weekend offers art shows and music festivals from Paonia to the north to Mountain Village to the southwest.

Our business posts will keep you up to date with the new enterprises.

The Senior section is filled with a variety of articles, some serious and informative, some curious and amusing. We’re meeting and interviewing older people who are enjoying themselves doing everything from skiing to painting to helping out in the community as volunteers.

Enjoy varied blogs by  talented regional writers who share their impressions, lifestyles and adventures.
