We then proceeded up to Royal Gorge which is the highest bridge in the world at 1,053' above the Arkansas River. We did the full tourist package which included access to the bridge, an inclined railway ride down to the bottom, and a tram ride across the gorge. I definitely had plans to suit here, but it was getting late. We were all getting pretty tired as well, and the wind was very gusty. I decided to bag it.
After the con we headed down to Colorado Springs to visit the Garden of the Gods which is a city park containing cool rock formations. I hadn't been there in about 20 years, so I was bit surprised by how developed it had now become. Our group was a bit tired and itching to hit the road back home, but I was going to fursuit, damnit! Scritch and I suited up and hit Balanced Rock. There were lots of people there since it was Memorial Day. To get to the rock took a scramble up a sandstone ledge. Normally it would have been a cakewalk, but in suit, it was a major ordeal. We made it up and pics were taken. Going down was a chore, and Scritch thought he was going to die, but we did it! After that it was just a 5-hour drive back to ABQ with a quick stop in Las Vegas (NM!) for dinner.
And yes, once again....PICS!
