Notes

Notice the scale of deep canyon at bottom and far away mesa flats at the top portion of photo.

Description

This quarter mile deep canyon gets its name from the fact that sunlight doesn't make it down to the bottom very long due to its narrowness making the dark grey rock appear even darker. The swift Gunnison River, visible at lower left of photo, can be fished for trout only by the most intrepid and physically fit sportsman willing to make the hard trek down and back up the narrow trail.
