I took the train this morning through the Royal Gorge. An amazing experience, with 1,000 foot sheer canyon walls on either side of the train and the rushing Arkansas River next to us. (Oh how I’d love to fly fish in the river.)
You can barely see the Royal Gorge Bridge in this photograph.
There were loads of rafts making their way down the river next to us.
Taken last night at the Canyon River Festival with people enjoying the Arkansas River.
My family will laugh at this. I’m a shaved ice addict!
I forgot to post this several days ago. The owners of the Hotel Ordway where presented with this certificate for their participation in the first cross-country tour (Bikecentenial, in 1976) that has now become the TransAmerica route. The 1976 event drew over 4,000 bicyclists. (I’ve noted with the dot where we’ll be staying tomorrow, Fairplay, Colorado.)
I did want to add this photo to say thanks again for the hospitality of the nice women in Tribune, Kansas. Thanks especially to Bertha and Jennifer!
