    • Black Canyon RV Camping

      Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Monument Apr 19, 2015 at 5:04 PM

      taking RV trip up through Durango CO to Black Canyon of Gunnison end of Aug. Looking for a good RV campground in Gunnison area that is close to good hiking, water & scenery. Meeting my sister from Denver in their RV - we are thinking Blue Mesa or Taylor Park based on what I've researched. Any insight would be greatly appreciated ;)

    • True Grit Cafe

      by JanetLC Online Now Mar 28, 2009 at 8:46 PM

      After watching True Grit,I was pleased to discover that the filming for this movie was done in Ridgway,Colorado! We had considered driving this route from Durango to Canon City and now I think we definitely will.The scenery in this movie was breathtaking. I have two questions #1 Does anyone know if the True Grit Cafe is still in existence? #2 Are the mountains In Rocky Mountain National Park as magnificent as the mountains in Ridgway? I have not seen the mountains in 30 years, and I want to soak up the majesty of the mountains as much as I can. We have 6 days to spend in Colorado (one will be at Mesa Verde). We will drive the million dollar highway and possibly stop at Black Canyon of the Gunnison,Royal Gorge, Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Mountain Park, Seven Falls and Pikes Peak. Should we drive on up to RMNP for a couple days? We wanted to get up a little closer to the mountains and do some hiking to see waterfalls, some lower peaks, etc. Do we need to go to RMNP to do this, or are the mountains in Ouray and Ridgway just as impressive?
