Black Canyon of the Gunnison

June 2013

It used to be called the Grand Canyon of the Gunnison, but they changed the name.  Could have been a lawsuit involved, I don't know.  It's in Eastern Colorado, and the Gunnison does feed into the Colorado River, but well upstream from that other canyon.  It's not as deep, but it drops much more steeply, and so has carved a much more narrow canyon.
 We went for several short hikes along the rim

Saw a classic car at one of the stops

On the way there, in Montrose, we crossed some interestingly named streets.  Maybe City Planning wasn't as advanced in the Old West.

And I already told you about  Garlic Mike's.  More pictures.
