Detouring from the original plan, We decided to check out The Black Canyon of the Gunnison. It was great to visit yet another area that we had only read and dreamt about. As a nod to the canyons intimidating chasms, we started out on the Casual Off-Route with the Direct finish. (III-5.9, 6-9p)
We then spent another night there and ran into Blake and Nate right before we did the AWESOME Scenic Cruise, at N. Chasm . (V-5.10+)
We are now trying to figure out where to go next, the Zion/Vegas area is about to sizzle.
Special thanks to our new friends at the Crawfords’ Black Canyon Cafe! What a dinner they fixed for us.
