Bill Clinton moved this to National Park status in 1999. Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Beautiful place, hiked down in it a few years back to camp and fish for 3 days.
Go to the visitor center, walk the uplands trail along the rim, there is a cheat/short-cut if you park at one of the look-out points. The Beard Token is under a pine tree with a view of the canyon. There is a small rock house at the base of the tree, check there. If you can’t make it to the Black Canyon, you can always get your own at http://beardtoken.com
