Jul 19, 2009 - Remarkable Royal Gorge Bridge

While we were in Gunnison, we picked up a couple of brochures on two more scenic spots we wanted to visit in Colorado, the Royal Gorge Bridge in Canon City and Seven Falls which was just south of Colorado Springs. Our plan was to head east to I-25 and then head south to New Mexico.

It was back over Monarch Pass (I slept through it this...
