Our family loves National Parks! Camping, hiking, time together outside - these are all elements we enjoy.
Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado is one of the parks we explored in 2016. The canyon is beautiful, deep, and steep
This park is a gem, hidden right in Colorado. Compared to many of the parks we have visited, Black Canyon was far less crowded. The campground was simple and lovely.
Our family hiked the Rim Rock Trail from the South Rim Campground to the Visitor Center - beware, there are some steep drop-offs along this trail. We brought our ergo carrier along and I used it to carry our youngest on my back.
Overall, this is a beautiful and unique park. Be sure to carry plenty of water while hiking here (or anywhere else). Bring your hats and sunscreen. Summer days will likely be warm, and evenings cool - and stars amazing!
