Ever wonder what the Grand Valley looked like before us human beings decided to bring all the cement and interstates here? Here you go. This panorama overlooks Palisade and appears to have been taken in 1908.

If 1908 is an accurate date for this pic, it's more than 20 years before I-70 was extended through Colorado.

There is only one other picture from this era that I'm aware of and that is a picture of the women's baseball team in Palisade from 1910.
