The Needle

A fishing boat approaches the Currecanti Needle, a 700 foot granite spire on the south shore of Morrow Point Reservoir. Morrow Point is one of the greatest fishing holes in the world, located in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River, at an elevation of over 7,000 feet.

Who was Curecanti? One reference I found described him as a Ute Indian sub-chief who roamed through eastern and southern Colorado in the 1860s and 1870s. 

The Needle was used for many years as an advertising symbol for the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad, and its logo beginning in 1884. The railway ran along the northern bank of the Gunnison River and passed near the Needle. General William Jackson Palmer, owner of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad saw the needle as a promotional tool and was quick to call the section of tracks "The scenic line of America."
