|Royal Gorge Bridge|
A few years back, I drove over the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. It had been my first time driving between Vegas and Phoenix since the year 2002. Back then, Route 93 traveled directly on the Hoover Dam. I remembered that route was a two-lane road and if you got stuck behind a slow car, your trip would be miserable. However, to my surprise, Route 93 had turned into the Interstate 11 Corridor. This open highway was fast! Without prior knowledge, I was driving over what I learned later to be the 2nd highest suspension bridge in this country, standing at 890 feet. Naturally, I researched it and discovered that Colorado had the highest such bridge, thus -- here we are!
|1053 Feet in Height|
|Ohio Flag, of course!|
Ayden had trepidation walking across, so I suggested the gondola on the way back. Another option would have been to zipline, but he used the broken arm excuse. Ah, I suppose that was viable, since his arm was broken, so we road the red cable train back.
