We had another great day! Today was our prettiest drive we've had so far.
Charlie has been soo good the entire trip, he's been snoozing the whole time.
Our first stop was Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Colorado. It was amazing! My favorite stop along the trip for sure.
Normally you have to pay a $15 fee to get into the park but since it's winter we could go for free. The only part of the park that was open was the south rim which is a road that runs along the 2,000 foot narrow canyon walls dropping vertically to the Gunnison River. I would love to go back and do some hiking or camping sometime! I can't even imagine how amazing it would be to stand in the bottom of the gorge and look up at the walls surrounding you.
Colorado is known as "colorful Colorado" and that it was! The scenery on our drive was so beautiful, most of the drive was on back roads going through mountain ranges or following along rivers and lakes.
For lunch we stopped at Marios in Gunnison. I would drive all the way from Georgia to Colorado just to eat lunch here again, it was the best! We both ordered a side salad with garlic ranch, yes GARLICKY ranch... Yum! A homemade calzone with banana peppers and a sweet tea, yay for having sweet tea again! They don't serve that on the west coast anywhere.
