Royal Gorge

Sunday we went to the Royal Gorge.
It was a warm, sunny day.

We all rode over the gorge on the gondola. Whew, it was high up there. I have discovered that the older I thoughts on heights are not what they once were.

On the other side of the gorge, we walked to the playground area. They had a carousel of sorts (half of the horses were unable to be ridden on). The actual playground, the older kids played on. The rocking toys that have the springs were probably my favorite entertainment. Noah was the only age/size appropriate rider..but that didn't stop a few other grown men to play on them too!

We watched a magic show in the theater, and then walked across the bridge.
It is so crazy how they were able to build a bridge that has held up this long, and held up the forest fire a few years ago.

Noah looking through the cracks of the wood planks on the bridge, to see WAYYYYY down there.

I feel like we have a very similar picture to this taken about 20 years ago...the siblings at the Kansas flag.

We also rode the train around the area by the gorge. After that we were pretty warm and ready to move on to the next adventure.
