Black Canyon National Park

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park consists of a canyon 2,900 feet deep and only 40 feet wide at its narrowest point. It is called the Black Canyon because sunlight reaches the canyon floor for only about an hour a day. This Park was a national monument until October, 1999 when a bill signed by President Clinton designated Black Canyon as a national park, affording it the protection and management of the National Park Service.
