I have lived in Delta for almost eight years and I absolutely enjoy not only the scenery but the friendly people. Having the mountains completely surround you and lots of Wildlife is nice

Delta County is made up of a bunch of small towns that are all very unique. Every year each town holds something fun for the public. It does lack clothing stores and store variety but gives back with fun events year round.
Delta has wonderful geological features. The town is quiet and very friendly. I love the rural layout and lack of subdivisions. Many of the locals are very knowledgeable about agriculture and local legends. The region has many good places to see within a days drive. The weather is very mild and never any extreme storms or temperatures. Delta also has many nice scenic back country roads for driving.
