Colorado trip part 2: Black Canyon of the Gunnison

Our next stop was Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.  It is the newest of all the National Parks and only became one in 1999. 

 We went on a really cool hike from the Campground to the Visitors center along the rim of the Canyon.

 I really like these people.  We have so much fun on our trips and the girls are so great about hiking with us and so excited to see knew things, even it it is just another canyon.

 The Canyon was really cool and reminded me of something out of Game of Thrones.  The canyon is super deep and looking down them caused vertigo.

 The rocks have patterns in them that in places look like dragons drawn on the canyon walls.

 We even got grandma to get out of the car:)

 And the girls added another Badge to their Jr, Ranger collection.

On our way to our next destination we stopped in Silverton, Colorado.
