We arrived at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park after a very scenic drive through southern Colorado. I didn't think anything could beat those views this day, and then I saw the Painted Wall... The contrast between the layers and the shear size of this wall had me stunned. at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

In one word...Breathtaking! Black Canyon of the Gunnison River is an incredible sight to see. Such a dramatic landscape shaped and carved by a powerful river over centuries of erosion. It is believed that the Canyon gets deeper by only 1” every 100yrs or by about the width of a strand of hair per year 😳 . It’s crazy when you think about how long it took to carve this 2000’+ deep canyon and how short of a time we’re here to witness these little changes that have such a dramatic effect on the earth. . . . #adventureeatrepeat #usaroadtrip #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #blackcanyon #blackcanyonofthegunnison #viewcolorado #colorfulcolorado #colorado #coloradogram #mtnchicks #adventurecouple #fulltimetravel #fulltimerv #rvlife #mountainsarecalling #mountainlovers #coupleswhotravel #coupleswhohike #canon5dmarkiv #homeiswhereyouparkit #hikingcouple #lifeontheroad #rvnomads #amongthewild #girlswhohike #allaboutadventure #exploreyourbackyard at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

Black Canyon absolutely shits on Grand Canyon. Sorry not sorry, but this place is one of the most underrated national parks. Some dude I don’t know said it best,”Several canyons of the American West are longer and some are deeper, but none combines the depth, sheerness, narrowness, darkness, and dread of the Black Canyon” Most def. #blackcanyonofthegunnison #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #getoutstayout #optoutside #coloradolife at Painted Wall View

People were asking a few questions about gear yesterday and I was asked what is the one peace of gear I don’t leave the ground without on a trad climb or alpine route? Well that’s easy Hexes! (Is this a sign I’m getting old??) I can’t count how many times they have gotten me out of sticky situations over the years. Light weight and no moving parts to go wrong they are perfect in the alpine and trad routes. Once you get used placing them I find them as fast as plugging in cams. Left them behind years ago on some climbs and regretted it every time. So now there a standard on my rack. My personal favourites are @metoliusclimbing ‘Curve Hex’ alpine set. Five hexes from size 6 - 10. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #tasclife #rabusa #blackcanyon #blackcanyonofthegunnison #climbing #metoliusclimbing #tascperformance #tascperformanceambassador #wearerab #rockclimbing #colorado #alpineclimbing at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

Black Canyon makes park #14. Unexpectedly one of the most beautiful and eerie places I’ve been to. I imagine orc coming out of the black canyon walls and Froto trying to get rid of the ring. #blackcanyonofthegunnison #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #getoutstayout #coloradolife at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

Black Canyon National Park, CO - 190522. This wall in the Canyon is referred to as Painted Wall. Named for it's unique color due to molten rock many years ago. At 2500' it is almost double the height of the Empire State Building. #explorecolorado #nationalparks #colorado #blackcanyonofthegunnison @nationalparkservice @blackcanyonnps #rockwall #2500' #canyons #valley #river #naturephotography #sony #sonyalpha #sonya7rii #canon #canonfd #cannon24mm #24mm at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

"Art is a harmony parallel with nature."⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ -Paul Cezane⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Black Canyon of the Gunnison became a National Park in 1999. The Black Canyon, so named because the walls are often shrouded in shadows making them appear black, has some of the world’s oldest exposed rock “basement” rock that is nearly 2 billion years old. WOW right? ⠀⠀ I have only scratched the surface of this park. I am small but being in this park, one can't help but feel small and insignificant. ⠀⠀ If any of you have been here, I would love ideas of area to explore. ⠀⠀ Now go out and #ExploreMoreCreateMore ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Photographed with @nikonusa⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #Blackcanyonnps #blackcanyonofthegunnison #blackcanyon ⠀⠀ #ig_photoofday #optoutside #wonderful_places #travelstoke #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife⠀⠀ #traveldestinations_ig #ig_usa #visittheusa #tasteusa #outdoorsusa #Wildandco #Coloradoviews #outtherecolorado #beautifulColorado #BPMag ⠀⠀ #worldshares #national_park_photography #hikingboots ⠀⠀ #roamtheplanet #EarthFocus #EarthPix at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

Goodbye Utah, hello Colorado! Spent my last day hiking around the CO river in Moab and when it started to rain I hightailed it out of there to Black Canyon. Camped near by so I could see the canyon with fresh eyes and had a lovely morning hiking around the rim, exploring most all of the trails. Only missed the last lookout. And on the 3rd pic you can actually see the second the snow storm is about to hit. I ran out to the point to to get a peek of the views and just as that gray cloud came in, everything turned to blizzard. The moment I knew it was time to head to Denver and have my week of rest with the fam. First time in a real bed in almost 2 months! #blackcanyonofthegunnison #blackcanyonofthegunnisonnationalpark #usnationalparks #arches #moab #canyons #denver #roadtrip #roadtripusa #peoplewhohike #girlswhohike #womenwhotravel #hikeutah #hikecolorado #hikemore #hikingvibes #getoutside #naturephotography #findyourhappyplace #naturelovers #mountaintop #explore at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

@thewanderervan

Today we experienced our most strenuous hike by far on this road trip! The gunnison route, an 1800 ft vertical drop, in black canyon of the gunnison national park is not for the faint-hearted. The trail consisted of thick slippery mud at the upper section, which turned into dry crumbly dirt as we descended into the canyon. Then about 1/3 of the way down we encountered an 80 ft metal chain that helped us maneuver down the steepest part of the route safely. After that it was a lot of scrambling down what seemed to be a huge rock slide full of big boulders and small loose rocks. I have to admit, I felt like a child again using my hands and feet to climb down and back up this canyon, which put a smile on my face. Time lapse video of this hike to be posted soon! . 14,443 Miles Traveled #blackcanyonofthegunnison #nationalpark #colorado at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

Today we went to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. This place was awesome!!! Apparently the deer mean business here, so I wasn’t allowed to go all the places I wanted. One look from one of the deer, and I can see why....still fun though! @blackcanyonnps @nationalparkservice @nationalparkgeek @nationalparkpaws @national_park_photography #blackcanyonofthegunnison #blackcanyonofthegunnisonnationalpark #montroseco #montrosecolorado #visitcolorado @visitcolorado @visit_colorado @visitmontrose #stayhereplayeverywhere #elhew #elhewpointer #elhewpointersofinstagram #pointeringles #retiredbirddog #pointer at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

Looking up on the sharp end with only three more pitches to get out of the Black. The only problem was trying to find any pro. Great new line, belays we’re bomber, but lack of pro was a little nerve wracking for my partner. . Even when I end up tying into a rope I’m more or less soloing🤷‍♂️. . Still feeling weak this season but slowly getting some vertical feet in and hopefully I’ll start feeling stronger soon. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #colorado #tasclife #tascperformance #tascperformanceambassador #blackcanyon #blackcanyonofthegunnison #rockclimbing #climbing #climbing_photos_of_instagram #wearerab #rabusa #grivel at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

Steep, deep, and narrow, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison is a vertical landscape. ⁣(Disclaimer: In the photo of my foot, I am not standing on the ledge. Although it does appear that way. I was sitting back at a safe distance and swung my foot out for photo.) ⁣ This was our final national park visit before turning our sights homeward, 6,210 road miles. Did not keep track of miles hiked or kayaked. Another trip perhaps.⁣ ⁣ #blackcanyonofthegunnison #canyons #nationalparks #nps #nationalparksusa #usanationalparks #roadtripusa #roadtrip #explorecolorado #visitcolorado #sightseeing

Western Roadtrip, USA 🇺🇸 // On of the first couple stop along the 12 day journey • COLORADO > ASPEN > BLACK CANYON > TELLURIDE Aspen’s charm built our anticipation of Telluride! Grabbing some breakfast with a pool view we were ready for the road. We took the detour that locals demanded was a must. Black Canyon was worth the drive they said, and for miles we were stunned! A couple hiking paths later during our pit stops we were graced by endless lakes, the Colorado River and steep canyons. Making great time to Telluride, squeezing in some hot springs was checked off our list. An eye awakening experience to laugh about 😂. As always the journey is as much a blast as rushing to the destination and this part of our road trip was just that! #piyanjuliphoto #roadtripusa #countrygirllooking #mountainscalledsoiwent #westernroadtrip2018 #blackcanyonofthegunnison #coloradoriver at Black Canyon of the Colorado

“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.” —Gustav Flaubert • • • • • • • • Our 2nd National park stop was Black Canyon of the Gunnison. This place caught us by surprise in many ways. The first of which is how drastically the weather in Colorado can change in a VERY short amount of time! When we arrive to the visitor’s center there was thick fog and snow and nothing was really visible. After maybe 25 minutes in there we walked back out to see a GIANT, beautiful, breathtaking, canyon where previously was literally just fog and snow! Even just the trails on this stop were so pretty. We went back at night because on the right night you can see the Milky Way, but unfortunately we found a giant bright full moon. It was still beautiful and there were lots of stars! #blackcanyonofthegunnison #thatmountainair #gobacksie #blurredvision #ohhhcopycat #carchips #nodoubleturns #cattleguard #blueenup #twoplacesleft #travelbuddies #snackie #cowboypizza #skinwater #tradesies #bitesies #pacmanbattleroyale at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

Speechless. - Not even being dramatic here. The views, the history, and the experience I had Hiking all the way down to the Gunnison River and back up has left me speechless. - The hike itself is intense and one of only five routes to the river. Most of it isn’t even a trail, so you just have to guess your way down a canyon wall and guess your way back up it. Needless to say, it was intense and one of the riskiest hikes I’ve done. What made it even more “adventurous” was the downpour of rain then a surprise snowstorm that made the ascent an adrenaline rush. - Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is absolutely worth a stop, even if you’re not the hiking type! Just the views alone along the entire drive through the Park make the visit worth it in every way. I can’t wait to go back. And getting emotional at the beauty of the place was absolutely worth it, too. - 5.21 miles, 1,967 feet of elevation gain, and 2h 47m of elapsed time. - #Colorado #Gunnison #blackcanyonofthegunnison #co #outdoors #hiking #hike #nature #rain #snow #MemorialDay #canyon #canyons #optoutside #outdoors #adventure #photography #WildWestendorf at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
