Gunnison River "Way Down There" / by Dave Hileman

The Black Canyon of the Gunnison is a narrow slash in the rock that is merely 40 feet wide at the river at certain points and that was completely full of water side to side when we were there. It is also very deep so that it receives on 33 minutes of sunlight at the base. One person said nothing matches if for "depth, sheerness, narrowness, darkness, and dread of the Black Canyon."
