Let’s continue our easterly trek …… Our stay in Montrose, Colorado, was way too short, but luckily the summer rain held off long enough for me to get in a few hours exploring Black Canyon of the Gunnison. This would be my third visit exploring this small National Park and I never tire of the view. It’s like a mini Grand Canyon but instead of the various shades of red sand stone rock that’s common in the southwest, there’s an unusual blend of gray and black granite rock.
Moving on toward Gunnison, Colorado….. Just off Highway 50 about an hours drive east of Montrose, the highway starts to meander along the Blue Mesa Reservoir. This is the largest reservoir in the state of Colorado stretching approximately 20 miles long with about 96 miles of shoreline.
It was near the end of July and temperatures were expected to be in the 80 degree Fahrenheit range, and with no large trees to provide shade, we wanted the ability to run our air conditioner. Thus, we decided to scope out a campground with electric hook-up (our generator will not power the A/C).
