Black Canyon - The North Rim
Photography of The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Colorado, North Rim
by Charles E. Carstensen
The North Rim of The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is more remote than the South Rim. It is a different experience in viewing this spectacular natural canyon in that the visitor is much closer to the edge of a 2000 foot drop to the bottom of the canyon. At the closest point the canyon is only 1100 feet away. It took 2 billion years for river water to create the awesome canyon. This book takes the reader on a tour of the North Rim up close and personal. Updated 12/17/2009.
I am a photographer located in western Colorado now specializing in photography of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.
