Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

A few weeks ago Jay and I spent a few hours in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, which is less than two hours from Telluride. After all of my vacation blogging, I had to take a break from spending so much time at the computer, so here are a few pictures a little late. We took a short hike on the Oak Flat Loop.
Along the trail were dramatic views of the canyon and the Gunnison River way below.
My favorite spot is the Painted Wall.
Fall was just beginning at the rim of the canyon.

Looks as though you picked a lovely day for your visit, Lisa. I like it there a lot. Raining hard here now, so leaves will be coming down. Went to Vail today, and it was peak for the aspens.
