"Black Canyon of the Gunnison"

When: Wed., April 18, 7 p.m. 2012

The first trip I made to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison several years ago delivered a late spring snow overnight. The morning after, an eerie and beautiful fog obscured much of the river below. But standing on the rim in almost any weather is a memorable experience. When you get the chance, imagine rock climbing the nearly 2,500 feet out of the giant gorge. And to aid with that visual, attend tonight's free 7 o'clock slideshow at Mountain Chalet (226 N. Tejon St., mtnchalet.com), presented by local climbers Bo Parsons and Jes Meiris. One thing I can promise: deep thoughts all around. — Matthew Schniper
