|Blue Mesa Dam - not far from Gunnison the Black Canyon begins|
|stopped to eat a watermelon on a back road up in the sticks|
|coming down off McClure Pass|
|I'd just passed Marble when I saw a moto parked on the side|
|I pulled around and met Madonna & Ronald and this waterfall|
|I scurried up a sketchy path to see if I could see more|
|looking down across the road to Crystal Creek|
|the wash bowl....i was wearing my flip flops|
|this is as high as I made it, on the way down I scared myself|
A. I shouldn't have been in flip flops. B. I needed to trust myself and was having a tough go of that.
I had to put the visions of losing my footing and falling to my death out of my head and focus on getting down safely. In the end, I went for it and had no incident. It was sorta like dropping in on a ramp for the first time. Once you've done it, you look back and think "what was so hard about that".
|I took the time to stop & see where Julie worked - the Redstone Inn|
|I figured Penny would be blown out from high water, but soaked for a sec|
