Black Canyon of the Gunnison

07 Jul 2015 6 9 456
In the eponymous national park, Colorado. A spectacular gorge cut in hard metamorphic rock, with local granite bodies, by the Gunnison River. Looking upstream (southeasterly), from the Chasm View trail. This is on the considerably less-visited north rim of the park, which is _not_ accessible by a paved road! On consulting the USGS topo (Grizzly Ridge 7.5'), the canyon here is over 1700 ft (518 m) deep.
