Royal Gorge Bridge & Park – Our Thrilling Visit Part 2

On my last post I shared some of our visit to the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park in Canon City. It was a spectacular visit.  Here is a link to Part 1 in case you missed it.  I ended that post after watching the video in the Plaza Theater. I left the theater sad, but glad that no one was hurt during the fire that destroyed much of that park. Happily the park was able to reopen after much clean up, planning, planting, and rebuilding. I don’t know what it was like before the fire, but it is a beautiful park today. We eventually made our way to the bridge after stopping to check out the Entertainment Stage. I was so excited to start walking across the bridge. We have been on a few suspension bridges in the past, but not one with such amazing views no matter which way you looked.

This was the attraction that had me wanting to visit and explore the park.

It is huge and very beautiful.   Continue reading “Take a Walk on the Suspension Bridge at Lynn Canyon Park, Vancouver”
