Colorado: Part Four

Catch up with Part One, Part Two, and Part Three!

After camping out at the base of NORAD and the Dunes for four days we decided to make a stop at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison for a day and get a motel room for the night so we could shower and clean up some.

We only spent a few hours at the Canyon but it was something to see. We went to a spot overlooking an area called the Painted Wall that has massive veins of minerals running through the dark rock and it was so deep that four Washington Monuments or one and a half Empire State Buildings could fit in it.

Again, with movement space limited I tried to have some fun with the patterns in the wall in order to try to make something unique.

Enjoy the pictures and stay tuned for Aspen and The Maroon Bells in the next parts!
