... and Alaska. We traveled to the point at which we stopped on our previous trip into the park from the western entrance; stopping at several overlooks and taking two short hikes. On one of the hikes we spotted a small herd of Elk as they were moving away from our position. The views of the mountains and the valleys were breathtaking. After lunch we turned around and headed east, there is only one east / west road through the park, to US Rt. 36 and ...

Made our way through Montrose to an awesome camping spot in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, East Portal. Only 5 van spots, and 15 tent sites.
