Curecanti National Recreation Area and Arkansas River along Route 50

The drive from Canon City to Grand Junction can be via Route 50. This route follows the Arkansas river.

Route 50 passes through the Curecanti chain of lake overlooks, then the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.

I was there in September/October to try for Fall colors, but they were quite late this year. Most of the colors I saw were in the mountains near 9,000 feet altitude or higher.
