Royal Gorge Train

Our big piece of our trip was to ride the Royal Gorge Train.  We did the dinner train and so the trip started around 6:30 pm and we got back to the station around 9:30.  

 We got to stop right at the bottom of the gorge area and look up at the bridge:


 You may remember last summer when we walked across the bridge from the top:

Here you can see how swift the water is.  This is the Arkansas River, and it is not yet at the peak from the summer snow melt.  They expect it to rise another 2 feet, and already they have forbidden any rafting.  

 Here we are....the two love birds....
