Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and Curecanti National Recreation Area resumed regular operations on Monday, Jan. 28. Superintendent Bruce Noble thanked winter visitors for their patience and their willingness to care for their public lands. Aside from full trash cans and messy restrooms, both sites weathered the shutdown well. "Special thanks go to J&K Services of Gunnison for their donation of in-kind services to clean restrooms along Highway 50," said Superintendent Noble. "We had many offers of assistance from the local communities and we appreciate all that support."
