This is the route we took to get to Gunnison although we made a few stops along the way. The drive through several canyons; Royal Gorge, Texas Creek, Monarch, and up to the summit of Monarch Mountain. The golden yellow clumps of Aspens and the rippling water along the roadsides were gorgeous, although my photos don’t really do it justice.
Royal Gorge ($25, so we didn’t go to the bridge)
The Arkansas River, Frisco got to wet his feet and slurp up some cold, cold water.
