I did something today that I never do: drag myself out of bed at 5:30 in the morning. But it was for a great reason! To go zip lining! It was Ryan’s Mom’s idea (she’s awesome like that) for us to go zip lining the next time she came to visit. Sometime later, we found a great deal on Groupon for the Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours. The Royal Gorge is about two hours away and we had to be there at 9am, so early rising was a must. And I don’t regret. It was a BLAST! Here are a few pictures I took during the tour.
Aaaannnd! For those who don’t follow me on instagram (IG name is growlingsteph), let me introduce my new ‘do! I went for it and did the whole thing PINK!
This picture was taken at the Royal Gorge near The Royal Gorge Bridge. What a disappoint that was. It is known as the second (first highest until 2001) highest bridge in the world. Unfortunately, you have to pay to even get near it, or even get a good look at it. They have these really ugly big-enough buildings right in front of it, so unless you want to pay to walk/drive on it, seeing it is out of the question. There is a “Royal Bridge Viewpoint” but unless you can see around corners, it’s not really a viewpoint.
All in all, it was a great day, and I would love to zip line again! We heard there is a good one in Durango. I wonder how far away that is….
