North Rim quieter, more ‘primitive’ than South Rim

The Gunnison River continues to carve its way through the 1,800-foot deep Black Canyon in this view from Exclamation Point on the North Rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Historic flows might have reached 12,000 cubic feet per second or greater, twice the high flows expected later this spring.

The Gunnison River continues to carve its way through the 1,800-foot deep Black Canyon in this view from Exclamation Point on the North Rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Historic flows might have reached 12,000 cubic feet per second or greater, twice the high flows expected later this spring.

Guide books describe the North Rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park as “quiet, undeveloped and primitive.” Thank goodness for that, since it means you can hike…
