Black Canyon of the Gunnison

Southern Colorado in October is full of adventurous opportunities. Each turn is crowned with golden scenes of aspens that contrast beautifully with those rocky Mountains. One day a few friends and I went to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison to see the rugged gorge and the unique horizon that is carved out by the mountains near Ouray. One of those peaks was Uncompahgre - the 14,309 ft peak I climbed back in September.
