Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Western Colorado, pictured left, is a dramatic landscape cut by a river that drops at a rate 10 times steeper than the Grand Canyon. Clinton promoted BCoG from national monument to national park in 1999.
Here's a joke for your mid-week amusement:
Just before thanksgiving Jim and Eddie are out hunting for turkeys when Jim keel's over and collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. Eddie gets out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, 'My friend Jim is dead! What can I do?' The operator says, 'Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead.' There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the Eddie says, 'OK, now what?'
