Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park(Gunnison黑峽谷國家公園)-上

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Blue Mesa Reservoir是1965年興建在Gunnison River的第一座水庫,目前也是科羅拉多最大的水庫,而從這水庫的大壩下游起就是所謂的黑峽谷(The Black Canyon of the Gunnison)的開端。

在Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park的上游目前興建有三個大水庫--Blue Mesa Reservoir、Morrow Point Dam和Crystal Dam,這三個大水庫就是所謂的Curecanti National Recreation Area,一般到黑峽谷國家公園的遊客常會忽略這不受重視的休閒娛樂區殊為可惜。

在往黑峽谷國家公園的US-50公路上經過Curecanti National Recreation Area最少有三個點是必須停下來走走看看的:
Blue Mesa Dam
Pine Creek Trail
Morrow Point Dam


這三點我們就是利用第一天傍晚和第二天要進國家公園時順路玩進去。

Gunnison沿US-50公路西行,約26.5哩後遇US-50和CO-92岔路,右轉CO-92約0.7哩抵大壩;周邊景點有Lake Fork Visitor Center、Blue Mesa Dam Overlook,在這大壩底下即是黑峽谷的開端。

Pine Creek Trail

從Blue Mesa Dam回到US-50續西行約一哩處右下石子路可達步道口,從步道口往下走一兩百階石階可直抵Gunnison River的河谷。
