Black Canyon “Gunnison National Park”

Wow!  I do not even know where to start.

Colorado’s Black Canyon is one of the most beautiful things you can see.  It almost looks like it’s out of a start wars movie.  My wife and I couldn’t believe what we were experiencing.  The dark canyon along with the solid granite was oBlack Canyonne of the first things we noticed.  It is so hard to describe until you actually experience it for yourself.  My wife and I were so immersed in it we did not want to leave.  I don’t like saying “Best” but I believe this was the best scenery I have ever seen.

Some of the attractions for the summer at Black Canyon are a highway that give you a scenic view while driving your car.  The park also includes camping, rock climbing and nature walks.  You can also raft or kayak.  I would only raft if you are experienced because that water is powerful and could be very dangerous for someone who just want to try it out for there first time.

Winter attractions could be skiing or snowboarding.  There is also backpacking and snowshoeing which give you the ability to explore more of the terrain.  Make sure you are bundled up because it can get very cold.  Be prepared for all circumstances.  My wife and I snowboarded at this park and the powder was so light it made is so easy to carve into the snow.

Things to remember!  Make sure you are fully present because you want to absorb every moment.  I would recommend you take this experience for a vacation so you can do everything possible at Blacks.  If you plan on driving it will take a few hours.  The park is open year around.  If you plan on camping or getting a hotel it would be smart to make reservations ahead of time.  Bring your hiking boots and back up your bags and Visit Black Canyon.
