Tip of the Week

Royal Gorge

It is called the “Grand Canyon of the Arkansas River.” It is no wonder the Royal Gorge of Canyon City, Colorado received such a name. It is the world’s highest suspension bridge and hangs 1,053 feet above the river, and spans ¼ of a mile across the canyon. The bridge has a length of 1,260 feet and a width of 18 feet. Visitors have many ways of seeing the bridge. They can walk across, drive across, take a ride on the world’s longest Aerial Tram (2,200 feet), or go to the bottom on the world’s steepest incline railway (45 degree angle.) There is even a roller coaster that hangs above the river.
