Big enough to be overwhelming, still intimate enough to feel the pulse of time, Black Canyon of the Gunnison exposes you to some of the steepest cliffs, oldest rock, and craggiest spires in North America. With two million years to work, the Gunnison River, along with the forces of weather, has sculpted this vertical wilderness of rock, water, and sky. Less than an hour from SEI’s campus, it makes for a perfect end-of-class adventure.
