Back of card: Rio Grande. Possessing a distinctive primeval beauty, Gore Canyon is longer, more broken, and deeper than most western canyons. Lights and shadows, constantly shifting, enhance its wild majesty. Rugged Upper Gore Canyon extends for about five miles west of Kremming, opening into a small park at Azure. The Colorado River roars thru a narrow channel in Lower Gore Canyon, a chasm two miles in length, where the rim reaches a height of more than 1500 feet above the railroad.
