I'd heard of Black Canyon of the Gunnison before, and seen photos, so it was one of my first destinations in Colorado. Like the north rim of the Grand Canyon, the north rim of Black Canyon is less convenient to get to, therefore less crowded. So that's where I went.
The Park Service built a campground a short stroll from the rim, complete with a trail and observation decks. Some sites even have views of the canyon. They were occupied, of course. So I grabbed a spot under a tree.
"Hi. I'm the Gunnison River. I made this."
