Black Canyon of the Gunnison
Memorial Day weekend marked a camping trip to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, a hard-edged chasm in the earth. There was fishing, hiking and all the associated activities. The river was flowing, big time. at 700-1000 CFS, a sign claimed that death was likely for kayakers and no portages existed. The river was free flowing over a dam at 7000 CFS, consequently toto and all of Kansas was underwater.
