Black Canyon National Park

Black Canyon National Park is a few miles east of Montrose, Colorado. It's quite an impressive place, with steep canyon walls and the Gunnison River at the bottom.

There were very few people around, one of the advantages of visiting National Parks in the off-season. Koka would go right up to the edge and look over the cliffs.

The Gunnison River through Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park drops at an average of 95 feet per mile. By comparison, the Colorado River through Grand Canyon National Park drops an average of 7.5 feet per mile. There are some fearsome looking rapids down there!
