Royal Gorge Route

This past Saturday, Andrea and I took a trip on the Royal Gorge Route Railroad.  The train travels 12 miles from Cañon City to Parkdale through the Royal Gorge of the Arkansas River.  The scenery on the trip is incredible, and we had a great time on the trip.

After the train, we took Phantom Canyon Road from Cañon City to Cripple Creek.  The one-lane dirt road follows the route of the old Florence & Cripple Creek Narrow Guage Railroad and is capped by trips through two unsupported granite tunnels and across the only remaining bridge from the Florence & Cripple Creek NGRR.

Check out photos from the trip on my photo page.
