Downstream from Hoover Dam, Black Canyon is an ideal place to explore the Colorado River as it passes through some of the most unique terrain on earth. Slot canyons that have flowing hot springs with soaking pools make this spectacular canyon so special. Travelling here is best in canoe or kayak, though some day hikers do visit. Undiscovered by landscape photographers, Black Canyon has wonderful potential.
Black Canyon Overlook on an overcast day. The amazing volcanic rock possesses red, purle, black and brown colors. The lighting changes bring out various colors. The green Colorado River below is beautiful, just gorgeous.
Emerald Cave of Black Canyon: The green water is clear because the Hoover Dam captures all the silt. The water's color is mesmerizingly gorgeous. This cave can only be reached by small watercraft (canoe, kayak). What a great adventure.
