Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is so picturesque that even after several visits, I still find it beautiful beyond belief.

The Black Canyon of the Gunnison's unique and spectacular landscape was formed slowly by the action of water and rock scouring down through hard Proterozoic crystalline rock. No other canyon in North America combines the narrow opening, sheer walls, and startling depths offered by the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.
