Royal Gorge

We recently spent a week touring some sights around the Four Corners region. Our first destination on our way out there was the Royal Gorge.

It’s a tourist trap (private park) built around what was the highest bridge in the world from 1929 until 2001.  A wildfire destroyed most of the park (48 of 52 buildings) in 2013, but it has since been rebuilt.

The wife and I had both been there, but not since we got married, and not since the fire.  I’m happy to say you can barely tell the fire ever even happened, unless you look at some of the trees around the edges.

The incline railroad no longer runs, and they no longer allow visitors to drive across the bridge.  I’m one of the lucky few who got to drive across it pre-fire.
