|The Royal Gorge suspension bridge from the bottom of the gorge|
After leaving Seven Falls and Helen Hunt Falls (see THIS post), George and I drove to check out the ROYAL GORGE. I encourage you to check out this site (click HERE) for some interesting information about Royal Gorge!!!! This is one very NEAT place!!! Be sure to click on the photos for enlargements.
The bridge is 956 feet high and a quarter of a mile long...
First, we took the little caged railway down into the canyon. The Incline Railway was built in 1930/31 and is one of the world's STEEPEST railways. It was amazing going down in that canyon almost 1000 feet.
Hope you enjoyed seeing our photos from the Royal Gorge. Like most everywhere else we go, we highly recommend this area if you are ever in Colorado. SO---after a long and busy day (Air Force Academy Chapel, Seven Falls, Helen Hunt Falls, and the Royal Gorge), we hobbled back to the motel for a good night's sleep!!!
