'Roughing It Smoothly' travel blog




Hello .... we have been out of internet service for a couple of days.

We left Castle Rock, Co. on Wednesday 5th and were only going to go as far as Colorado Springs that day but it was only noon when we got there so we decided to go on. First we stopped long enough to go through their City Park. It is called "Garden of the Gods". There is a 1/2 hr drive through beautiful red rock formations.

We then moved on to Canon City, Co, where stayed 9 miles west of Canon City next to the Royal Gorge Bridge (highest suspension bridge, which we did not walk across!). On Thursday, we took the 2 hr train ride on the Royal Gorge Train. It took us through a gorge that in one spot was so narrow that it was not even wide enough to put a train track on the ground. They had to build a hanging bridge out of the side of mtn for it. We stayed at this campground for two nights. The second night Garry was outside our coach and encountered a trantula crawling across the ground. It was almost as long as a dollar bill.

It has continued to be in the 90's although the first night we were here there was a thunderstorm and wonderful rain then back to the 90's.
