We continue our retirement travel as we visit Canon City, Colorado, and enjoy lunch on an epic two-hour Royal Gorge train ride on the Royal Gorge Route Railroad. We see people enjoying Royal Gorge rafting on the Arkansas River and get a view of the Royal Gorge Bridge from 955 feet below.
Later in the day they walk across the wooden planks of the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, which is the highest bridge in US. We also encounter a large tarantula along a walking path and take the Royal Gorge gondola ride back across the gorge when strong gusts of wind rock the gondola and put a scare into the travelers.
Be sure to visit Royal Gorge and Canon City, Colorado, on your trip out west.
