Day 23, Colorado National Monument and The Black Canyon of The Gunnison

Up again before the sun with lots to see and do today just before we arrived at the Colorado National Monument we were greeted with the sunrise:

Then we were off for the two hour drive to The Black Canyon of The Gunnison, Note these pictures do not do this canyon justice. In fact I have stitched several pictures together in an attempt to show the depth of this canyon :

    Brad,

    Terrific blog. Everyday the photographs are just amazing. I know you take classes during cruises, but I think you should be teaching them.
