While here on our assignment in Cripple Creek we get one day off a week. Yesterday we headed over to Canon City and then spent a few hours exploring the Royal Gorge. Since I am a big chicken when it comes to heights I reluctantly agreed to walk over the swinging bridge that crosses the gorge. I had to keep my eyes focused on the mountains and never once did I look over the edge. It was a very scary hike especially when a car would drive past and the bridge would REALLY shake! We also took the incline train and experienced the gorge at the water level (my favorite spot). It was a great day as we traveled back home and pulled the car over to watch the clouds display their huge thunderheads as a storm was rolling into Colorado Springs that evening. I was exhausted from my excursion but also glad I didn't let fear rob me of enjoying my creators handiwork.
