Big Island View

No, unfortunately I’m not taking you to the Big Island of Hawaii today, but back down to Southern Colorado to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.  I don’t see this image much, but this is the Big Island View along the North Rim of the Black Canyon.  I was just swept away by the steep canyon walls contrasted with the wide open spaces just beyond the wall.  The clouds rolling over added a nice dramatic look to the image.  This is one place I definitely need to do some more exploring next year.  Hopefully I can get down in the canyon next year and do some hiking.
