Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

Gary and I are in Gunnison, Colorado staying at a Western Horizons Campground, Blue Mesa.  We were here our first year out and went to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, however, it was raining when we got there so we did not get to take very many of the walks to see all the park has to offer.  This time, it was a very sunny day and we were able to walk out to the various points and see the canyon.  On the way to the park, we stopped to see the Dillon pinnacles, just a spot on the side of the road.  Very enjoyable day.

P1340120 Dillon Pinnacles



P1340213 Gunnison River, 2300 feet below the rim

P1340226 Painted rock.

P1340146 I’m always amazed at the different types of trailers motorcyles pull behind to store their possessions.  Thought these were unusual.  Do these remind you of coffins?
