Home of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison
"Too many things to see..."
Montrose, Colorado is the home of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. In town for a Land Rover rally, we arrived a day early. The entrance to the Black Canyon was just six miles down the road...worth seeing.
See my page for...Black Canyon of the Gunnison
Montrose is also home to the Ute Indian Museum...which sits on the land that was once the homestead of Chief Ouray and his wife Chipeta...champions of the Native American people's cause. The museum pays great tribute to these great souls...see my "Things to do" tips.
We stayed in Montrose for five days, heading out to trails in all directions...into various terrains and adventures. We headed South towards Ouray, and hit trails on the Alpine Loop and into Yankee's Basin..
Trails north towards Grand Junction offered a peek into the desert, arch region on Utah's border...
