FYI I will endorse Gretchen's suggestion re the Royal Gorge. I walked on
the suspension bridge many years ago and it was totally great! Take your
camera because you will not see a more awe inspiring sight. Sorry I have
not been as active this summer.....the wedding will be July 27 and I will
have my life back. LOL I hope everyone is enjoying theirs.
