Surprisingly decent breakfast at Backstreet Bagel, then off for the 90 minute drive to the north rim of Black Canyon of the Gunnison. There's enough small towns on the way that I could have skipped the second bagel I bought to eat later for lunch-- the north rim isn't nearly as remote as I was lead to believe.
Did one quick hike out to Exclaimation Point when I got there. By all reports it was the most worthwhile view on the north rim, although I didn't have time to stop anywhere else to compare-- had to head back to the South Rim by 4:30pm to try to get a permit for the next day's hike, which I just barely got (15th out of 15th person allowed!).
The safety briefing for all of the routes down to the canyon floor (Gunnison Route, Warner Route, Tomichi Point) is serious. The entire inner canyon on both sides is a wilderness area, so no formal trails, only social ones, which means no maintenance, no signs, and no rescue for 24+ hours.
Then as quick dinner at Himalayan Pun Hill. There's a decent amount of ethic food for such a small town, although honestly the meal was pretty bad. Lamb curry was okay, the rest doesn't bear mention.
