It was a grey and snowy morning when we arrived on the first day of the season for a Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park driving tour of the South Rim. The North Rim was still closed.
This outing was part of our pivot and see a bit more of Colorado while we wait for our entry steps motor to arrive and be installed in Moab, Utah. Melanie and I decided to take a day trip to the National Park, Gunnison and Crested Butte. A full day of site seeing in Miranda.
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.
