Deep in the Gunnison River Canyon between Delta and Grand Junction, Colorado, are Escalante and Dominguez Canyons. This wilderness area can be visited only by boat. Waterfalls and plunge pools have chiseled cliffs through the Wingate, Entrada, Morrison, and Dakota formations. Dominguez Canyon features Ute and Fremont Indian petroglyphs and dwellings, as well as remnants of dinosaurs.
