Black Canyon Painted Wall on Flickr.
Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Monument is something hubbie has wanted to see for a while. This is the Painted Wall section of the canyon. Molten rock squeezed in between cooled rock at some point in the last few billion years creating the painted walls you see here. The canyon is long, it is narrow, and it is deep. And the Gunnison River drops really quickly along the canyon, making it treacherous.
