Royal Gorge BridgeAfter taking one of these pictures, Tim took a terrible fall, which skinned up his hands and knee badly, and sent our digital camera flying. The camera survived (although with a big crunch in one corner), and Tim eventually survived, too. Fortunately it was one of the last days of our trip, as he was sore for some time afterward. Guess it doesn't pay to be cheap.Jun 21, 2006

Royal Gorge BridgeIt's the "Royal Gourge" bridge (see note above for misspelling info). We were too cheap to pay the $20 or so each to go inside the park, so we stood outside and shot a few pictures.Jun 21, 2006

Another poseTim poses in the same "studio". I guess you could call it "God's Studio".Jun 21, 2006

Cathy with Cog-wheel train trackThey have a cog-wheel train you can take up the mountain. Instead, we took our 1994 Saturn. It was generally a good car, but started to overheat driving up, and the brakes overheated on the way down. Fortunately neither problem caused us any trouble.Jun 21, 2006
