Crystal Reservoir

The image today is from the Curacanti, Black Canyon of the Gunnison area.  I saw this view coming down Highway 92 down from the south rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison toward Curacanti.  If you ever get a chance, Highway 92 is very scenic and especially during the fall as the colors are changing. It’s definitely worth the longer drive to get to the South Rim.  This image is of Crystal Reservoir.  It has the deep blue waters of the Blue Mesa and is the newest of the three reservoirs in the area.

I’m heading to New York City this week, so this blog may go dark for a couple of days.  If I can find some time, I’ll try to get a post out.  Enjoy the warm weather while it’s here.  I know Colorado is gearing up for a snow storm on Wednesday.  Have a great week everyone.
