Since the fishing royally stunk, we decided to head to the Royal Gorge. A family member of mine had never been there so we decided to spend a day acting like tourist. Naturally scenic, it's a great opportunity to see and experience some breathtaking views of that area of Colorado.Besides being gorgeous, the Royal Gorge also holds claim to the world's highest suspension bridge. You can either walk or drive across the bridge. We chose to walk - on one of the windiest days of the year! Besides being scared of snakes, I'm also pretty well freaked out by heights! This was definitely out of character for me, but the views made it worth challenging myself!
The funniest part about crossing the Royal Gorge bridge was the fact that my two dogs went with us. One is a pointer, who looks more like a dalmation, and the other is a black and white miniature dachshund. The thing about my dogs is that they know no strangers. On that simple walk across the bridge we had more people stop and talk to us, ask us about the dogs, and even had them pose for pictures! They make quite a pair and definitely loved the attention. Here's a photo of them on the bridge, enjoying the popularity!
I know I said there were a bunch of photos that I wanted to share, but it seems that I've got too many from Day 2 of the trip to share in one post. Look for Part 2 tomorrow.
