Stormy clouds roll over this amazing outdoors paradise high in the Colorado Rockies. Part of the Curecanti National Recreation Area, this stretch of about 20 miles is truly a Colorado Dreamland!!! Just outside the town of Gunnison, the recreation area has everything any outdoors fanatic would love! From white water rafting, boating, and fishing, to camping, mt biking, and off-roading, there plenty of summery things to do in this vast epic mountain landscape!! Even better is the fact that its only an hour away from Crested Butte's Snowboarding Backcountry goodness!!!
