Black Canyon of the Gunnison
This morning, we went to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It was a bit hazy, so my pictures do not look as dramatic as the canyon does. I'm tired from our long drive home, so instead of rambling on about its geology, I'm going to be lazy and tell you to visit the site and read about it if you are interested. I'll just say this: the canyon walls are a steeper grade than the Grand Canyon. In places, it looks like they go almost straight down.
