Gunnison River

Gunnison River 

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Colorado. Looking upstream, from off the trail to Exclamation Point(!--yes, that's the name!) This is on the canyon's north rim, which gets a _lot_ less usage as it's accessed only by a graded road. The canyon depth here is ca. 1600 ft (~490 m), if memory serves.

How interesting, we are going to travel in Colorado soon, I was thinking about going to Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP. Wonderful view!

It has my enthusiastic recommendation! The South Rim is not far off US 50 and is easier to access--paved roads and everything--but it gets a _lot_ more usage because of that. Here's an album on the south rim:
and another (incomplete) on the north rim:
