Winter is apparently not the "in-season" for Royal Gorge but it was still a great site to see. And we didn't have to fight many other tourists either. We didn't get there until late into the afternoon because we had been trodging around Bishop's Castle most of the morning. Unfortunately for us, things were already closing down for the day.
We took the ride (it's not really a ride but I can't think of the dern name of it) down the mountainside to the bottom of the Gorge, which has the river running through it. My sister says they did a white water rafting adventure when they first moved to Colorado several years ago. Apparently it was a good time so you should check it out if you go during the summer.

Once we got back to the top, we walked across the massive bridge. You can drive across it too, which I would really recommend if you go in the winter. It takes a lot longer to drive across than it looks.
|I cannot believe Robby actually had the guts to walk out there. He is so terrified of heights.|

|No doubt she's the cutest toddler to cross the Gorge. Of all time!|
|There are crazy people who have jumped from this bridge. This ridiculously high bridge. No. Thank. You.|

The things you do for site-seeing.
Enjoy your weekend!
