I've heard this story over and over again growing up, so when Paul discovered the Royal Gorge was only 30 minutes away from Colorado Springs, I was excited to go. Except I wasn't sure I wanted to drive over the bridge.
So we took the railroad instead, and viewed the bridge (the tallest suspension bridge) from under it.
It was a great plan and very enjoyable.
The train tracks followed the rushing river all through the gorge.
God blessed us with another perfect day.
On the train we were able to sit in the a/c cars, or stand in the open air car. The weather was so perfect, we stood in the open air car for most of the trip, enjoying the cool breeze in our faces.
Our first glimpse of the bridge. Now I understand why my mom wouldn't cross it. (Just kidding. I've understood all these years why she wouldn't cross it with Dad!)
It was something to see.
The train ride was so relaxing.
