Black Canyon 4

Here's a morning image of the canyon.  Near the east end of the park, you can drive down to the river.  This access probably has something to do with the tunnel that carries river water to the city of Montrose and to farms in that area.  It's worth the drive, and not too challenging.  The tunnel runs 5.9 miles to the Uncampagre Valley.  When opened in 1909, it was the worlds longest irrigation tunnel.
