Description

Below Gunnison Gorge, the river becomes tranquil again as it joins the Uncompahgre near Delta and continues on to its rendezvous with the Colorado at Grand Junction. Rafters along this section glide by large petroglyph panels on the sandstone canyon walls, side canyons with waterfalls and pools, and many opportunities for short hikes. This area is a breeding ground for Canada geese and great blue herons, who nest in the stands of cottonwood trees by the shores of the north end of the river.
