Black Canyon of the Gunnison – More Beautiful Than the Grand Canyon?

Some people say that the Black Canyon of the Gunnison is more beautiful than the Grand Canyon. We decided to find out for ourselves and trekked down to the bottom via the Gunnison Route from the South Rim. It was an 1800 foot descent over 1 mile across steep, loose rocks. The bottom of the canyon features awesome campsites, pristine water and imposing cliffs. The fishermen of the Black Canyon has been dealing with mass die offs of rainbow trout due to a parasite that invaded Colorado rivers in the 1990s. The parasite causes whirling disease, an aquatic plague where young fish are deformed, swim in circles and die of starvation. Right now Colorado biologists are struggling to breed more trout to save the disease-ravaged population.
