Royal Gorge Bridge Park revisited
Although we have had a good view of the Royal Gorge from our train trip, we thought we would visit the Royal Gorge Park anyways. We wanted to see what had changed since we were here 20 years ago with Heather, Katie and my mother. In addition to the Bridge, tram ride and incline railroad, they have added a bungee swing over the gorge and a number of stores and shows.
The view remains breathtaking and we walked the bridge and took the incline rail ride to the river bed and generally enjoyed the morning in the sunshine.
Tomorrow, we leave the Canon City area and head to a campground just west of Gunnison, CO.
I have included a picture from our last visit to the bridge, just to show that not just the park has changed in the last 20 years.
