The persistent presence of an unattended vehicle led to the discovery of a man’s body in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park on Wednesday.  Black Canyon spokesperson Sandra Snell-Dolbert says Park Rangers used a helicopter to locate the victim after a Ranger noticed the car parked on the North Rim above the Painted Cliffs overnight.

Snell-Dolbert says The NPS, along with the Montrose County Sheriff’s Department and the Coroner are investigating the incident.
