you know you've waited too long to write a post about something when you can't even remember the name of the place. that's what photos are for! and these ones document our trip to the royal gorge suspension bridge.
the bridge in all its glory. it's one of the highest suspension bridges in the world at 956 feet high. which didn't terrify me as much as the roads up to mt. evans, but close!
a little history. the elevation is listed on everything here. i'm sure they mean it in a bragging manner, but really i can't breathe anywhere that's above 5,000 feet, so i take them as warning notes.
train way down below.
though the bridge sways in the wind, it's apparently strong enough to host buses.
and then b made me ride the trolley car of death across the canyon. excuse me, they call it an aerial tramway. they even post a note that the tram has carried more than 5.7 million people and traveled 200,000 miles since being installed in 1969. feeling goooood about that.
and, just think, this was way back in august! more posts coming soon.
