Black Canyon Sunset 2

Black Canyon National Park, Montrose, Colorado

Awe inspiring depths of Black Canyon of the Gunnison River. The canyon ranges from around 1500 feet to 1800 feet deep. Peering almost straight down into the darkly shadowed abyss from overlooks gives the viewer a feeling of vertigo. It is not called "Black Canyon" for nothing. Photo © copyright by Frank LeBlanc.
