RV Day 5

5 April 2015

Yesterday we spent the day driving from the Great Sand Dunes to a little place called Montrose. It was a pretty trip and we got to see some really pretty places. We drove part of the way driving through the Razor Creek Gorge and followed the river as it wound its way down from the mountains.

Today we went to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, just outside Montrose. The canyon is spectacular and Mum and Dad said it should not be missed if you are travelling through this part of the country. We enjoyed driving the rim and looking down at the running river below (the rapids caused by snow melt from the mountains around the area). Mum and Dad got out at all 12 viewing points, but I only got out 3 times because the little hikes were a bit tough for me. I stayed in the RV and ate chocolate easter eggs instead. On the last hike, Mum and Dad took some video for me and said that it was very, very beautiful but I probably wouldn't have made it. It was only 1,380 yards but it was at over 8,000 feet.90_20150405_B..unnison__1_.jpg270_20150405_B..unnison__9_.jpg1315490760_d3fcf.jpgthUT3ESFMX.jpg
