Don't miss this park if you are visiting the National Parks in Colorado. The visitor's center has a great film about the area with history and explanation of the formation. Fascinating.

This is a great overlook to see the Gunnison River below. It is close to the visitor's center and can be knocked out while parked at the large parking lot. This overlook is just one of many stunning views in this park.
