Road Trip Day 10 – Black Canyon of the Gunnison

04 Oct

From Montrose, we drove to The Black Canyon of the Gunnison, another National Park.
From the NPS website :-
“Big enough to be overwhelming, still intimate enough to feel the pulse of time, Black Canyon of the Gunnison exposes you to some of the steepest cliffs, oldest rock, and craggiest spires in North America. With two million years to work, the Gunnison River, along with the forces of weathering, has sculpted this vertical wilderness of rock, water, and sky.”

It’s a remarkable place, deep, steep and narrow gorges carved out by the river over millennia.

    That’s quite a landscape. I have to ask. Did you venture down? I know I would haven’t!

      There was just the one trail, with the warning board I posted and it was 30C so, no, we didn’t! It was, indeed, spectacular. 🙂
