We started off our tour going through the Curecanti National Recreation area. We stopped at the visitors center run by the park service. We were greeted by a very knowledgeable and friendly Park Ranger. He went over the areas of interest and marked them on the map. He also went on to help plan our trip after leaving the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. We followed everything he recommended and had a wonderful day. I wish I had gotten his name but I do remember he was originally from Conneticut. His love for this area was quite apparent and it was nice to hear such positive remarks.
