The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

We arrived in Montrose yesterday, but I didn't get a chance to post anything. We met a nice couple from Pueblo in the campground and sat outside with the kitties talking until almost 10 pm. I am posting some of the previous days pictures now.

Since we didn't have to leave the campground in Fruita until noon and we were only driving about 70 miles to the next stop in Montrose, we sat outside in the morning for a short time. There was a nice cool breeze and we enjoyed the leisurely time we had there. We liked this CG so much we hated to have to leave. As you can see the boys enjoyed it too.

                                                 More time in the playpen for the boys.

          Finnegan is so relaxed. He loves this corner of the dashboard for some reason.

After we left the CG we had to return the rental car. It was so much easier this time than trying to do it in the middle of 50 mph winds. Once we arrived in Montrose we drove to the airport to pick up our next rental car. This was pretty easy and the lady at Enterprise gave us a free upgrade to a Nissan Pathfinder which is really fun to drive.

Today, Sunday we decided to visit the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. On the way we stopped at Starvin Arvin's which is known for their breakfast. I had a western omelet with hash browns and biscuit. Look at the size of this "cat head" biscuit. One is more than I could eat. David had corned beef hash with eggs, hash browns and biscuits. By the time I got my camera out he was half way finished with his and too embarrassed to have me take a picture.

The Black Canyon was amazing, It is about 2700 ft deep with a river running through the gorge.
It was as impressive as the Grand Canyon, but unfortunately you cannot capture the 3 dimensions of  the canyon and gorge in pictures.

After our little outing we came back to the MH for the afternoon and made some hamburgers on the grill. It is nice and cool here at night and we are really enjoying the weather.
