On Tuesday, we drove to Royal Gorge which is about an hour from Colorado Springs. This was our first chilly day. Alexandra REALLY wanted to ride the aerial tram. Nana and I weren't too sure about it, but we went with her and really enjoyed it. Above is a view from the tram - it's a LONG way down!
We walked across the bridge later. Here's a photo of it from the tram.
They had a few animals there, but my favorite was this rare white buffalo.
Here's a photo of the 3 of us on the bridge taken by another visitor to the Royal Gorge. The bridge was actually a little scarier than the tram. There are some pretty large gaps between the boards that you can see through. Also, when a car would cross the bridge, the whole thing would shake for a minute or two.

We also went down to the bottom of the gorge on a little train-type ride. Above is a photo of the bridge from the bottom of the gorge. I took about 100 photos most days, so it's been hard to narrow it to just a few per day to post! :-)
