Day 47

Gunnison, CO to Montrose, CO

80 miles
3000 calories
6:35 time

I was sweep today with Arthur.  Mark hung with us for the most part too.  We got near town pretty late but still decided to take the optional 6 mile climb up to the Black Canyon to check it out.  As soon as we got to the top, a hail storm hit us and we took shelter.  We eventually made it back down - and into the host at about 8:30pm.  Looooong but awesome day.


 Art chalked for Mark & I once we made it to the top - we were the last....  by a lot.

You can see the tiny river at the bottom that has carved out the canyon for the past 2 million years.
