Black Canyon of the Gunnison


 Painted Wall

 Trail to the Painted Wall Overlook

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is located about 12 miles northeast of Montrose, Colorado, and an hour drive north and east of Ouray. Like many of the places we visited there wasn't a lot of other people there, and it was Sunday morning. We drove along the South Rim Drive stopping at many of the overlooks. Some were a short walk and some were nearing a third of a mile. Not very wide, but it was 2250' deep at Painted Wall.
