The Colorado River enters Grand Valley through DeBeque Canyon, which the powerful river has carved between Grand Mesa and the Roan Plateau.

Although the same geologic strata make up both features, because the Roan Plateau isn’t capped by basalt, it has eroded much more quickly and now stands about meters lower than Grand Mesa.
