Below Morrow Point Dam

About twenty minutes from where our cabin is located in western Colorado is the small town of Cimarron. This is also where the Cimarron River flows into the Gunnison River below Morrow Point Dam. There is an awesome trail that explores downstream from the pictured footbridge that we have hiked many times. If you look closely near the bottom right edge of the photo you can see the discolored water of the Cimarron as it enters the Gunnison. This discoloration continues downstream for quite a while before the muddied water of the smaller Cimmaron mixes with the crystal clear water of the Gunnison that comes out of Morrow Point Reservoir. One of my favorite hikes!
