While you are in Gunnison don't miss the Black Canyon. This stunning canyon, 2,000 feet deep, rivals the Grand Canyon for vertical thrills from the rim. Since you like the longer walks be sure to do the stroll from High Point (the end of the road) out to Warner Point. Most visitors just end up doing the short walks at Pulpit Rock Overlook, Cedar Point, and Dragon Point (a majestic view) because they aren't acclimated to the elevation yet.

SeeMore....we are definitely heading to Black Canyon. We will check out the hikes you mentioned.

G2.....Gary, tried to send you a picture of a couple of big rocks we had to negotiate at a NFS campground. Most of the back roads we have been on, we would have dragged our rear end. The lift kit has worked out great.

Day 59..... Forgot to mention, at Ouray, there was the FJ3 Summit....Toyota off-roaders. They're were everywhere. Couple of side streets wer,e blocked off for vendors. All kinds of stuff to spend your money on. We did hike most of the Perimeter trail. A portion of it reminded me of the Highline Trail hike at Glacier NP. Narrow trail cut out of rock ledge. Good hike. Great views of Ouray and surrounding area.

We just landed at a NFS campground located on Blue Mesa Reservoir. Never been in a NFS campground like this. All asphalt, 4 bars with AT&T, beautiful views.
More to follow.

Day 60.....with a saloon name of Silver Eagle, has to be great!....not so much. Ouray is a scenic town, too touristy for us.

Sorry again for the sideways photo....went in straight.

Day 60.....con't..... Just returned from exploring the north rim of Black Canyon of the Gunnison. The drive up Rte 92 from the dam at Blue Mesa Reservoir to the turnoff to Black Canyon NP at Crawford is spectacular. Black Canyon is a site to behold. The drive up and back, as well as the drive along the North Rim road, as well as the 3 mile hike to Exclamation Point, is some of the most impressive scenery I have seen. The hike along the north rim along the North Vista Trail was more enjoyable than the drive, maybe because we were the only hikers. There are many pull offs on the drive, our favorites were Kneeling Camel View and Big Island View. Not to be missed, is Chasm View, which is about a half mile walk, but off the road to the North Rim Campground. There is also the same named view on the South Rim, which we plan to see tomorrow. More to follow.....


Ok, one of you smart guys is going to have to instruct me on getting photos to load upright. Sized correctly. Posted straight. Again, sorry. Nothing ruins a post like sideways/upside down pics.

Day 61..... Today we went back to Black Canyon and explored the South Rim. The visitor center on the south side is about five times the size of the center on the north side....read that lots more people. We stopped at the pull offs like good tourist. Even on a Monday morning, parking at the pull offs was crowded. I remind myself that patience is a virtue..... Attached is a picture taken from the Warner Point "stroll" . This is the highest point along the canyon where the gorge is about a 2755' drop. That flat top "hill" in the background is Grand Mesa....about 10,000' AGL.

While at the south rim, we did as SeeMore suggested.....we took "the stroll" to Warner Point. Beautiful walk through pinyon pines and juniper evergreens along the trail. A picture of Jeanne on the trail.

Well, about frustrated enough with posting pics here....

If you edit your pictures down in size a bit, they should post right side up...at least, that has worked for me.
