This is a great hike that crosses the Gunnison River before heading into Dominguez Canyon. Beautiful cliffs and hopefully Big Horn sheep, and petroglyphs. The hike will start with a 1 mile hike along the railroad tracks and a dirt road before crossing the river and hiking approx 2.5 miles up the canyon. We'll turn around at/before the intersection of Dry Fork/Big Dominguez Creek. We should see an old sheepherder's place, and some petroglyphs along the hike!
