Description

"Our surroundings were of the wildest possible description. The roar of the water. ..was constantly in our ears, and the walls of the canyon towering half mile in height above us, were seemingly vertical. Occasionally a rock would fall from one side or the other, with a roar and crash, exploding like a tone of dynamite when it struck bottom, making us think our last day had come." Abraham Lincoln Fellows 1901. This is such a fitting description of The Black Canyon of The Gunnison National Park! Image taken from Warner Point elevation approximately 8,300 ft.
