I have always been entertained by this view of the habitat of fivenerve sunflowers.  That row of rock about a third of the way up the image?  That's actually a 2700-foot deep canyon!  Does anyone else remember the old westerns where fleeing cowboys or stampeding cattle suddenly come to a cliff?  Well, pardner, this would be it.  The Black Canyon of the Gunnison offers a lot more scenic views, but none appeal more to this little kid who once enjoyed all those Saturday morning westerns.
