Chris' trip to Royal Gorge in Colorado Springs




The big suspension bridge

The Arkansas River, which is over 1000 feet below the bridge. That makes this the world's highest suspension bridge.

Another view

The guy wires at the end of the bridge. These seperate wires combine to form the two big cables that hold up the bridge.

Entering the bridge

The guy wires from underneath

The guy wires from in between the guy wires

The Arkansas river and a railroad track that runs along the river.

See the little red gondola up high in the air. You can ride in it from one side of the valley to the other.

This is one of the two big cables that hold up the bridge. It is made up of all of the smaller cables in the earlier picture.

All 50 state flags are flying on the bridge. Here is the one from "N. Carolina."

Cars can cross the bridge. When they do, the bridge shakes.

This is what the bridge looks like if you fall off it.

A pretty XB. Is that dark magenta or dark cranberry?

Butterfly or Parkayfly?

This tree needs some dirt!

Can you see the little yellow raft 1000 feet below?

Way in the background, in the center, you can see the mountaintop that looks like John F Kennedy's face

"Hey buddy, you going as far as Lizard Lick?"

Nice house

Pretty

Looks like mini Sequoia Cactus
