Wow! Another day of fantastic scenery!
We left Gunnison this morning & went 65 miles down the road to Montrose, CO. After setting up our home & having a quick lunch, we headed out to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. We saw the Black Canyon 40 years ago - it wasn't a national park then. In fact, it just became a national park in 1999. The National Park Service has done a wonderful job with this park. The overlooks & view points are great & the visitors center is very nice. We watched the short movie about the history of the Black Canyon & it was very informative & well done. The canyon itself is awesome - awe inspiring. Seeing this makes you realize how small you are & how powerful God is.
We spent several hours in the park going from viewing spot to viewing spot - taking picture after picture - & none of them seem to really do justice to the canyon. You just have to see it for yourself.
