The drive took me past Royal Gorge, so I decided to stop in there while in the neighborhood. I couldn't help but compare the bridge over Royal Gorge to the Mile High Swinging Bridge at Grandfather Mountain - and laugh.
The drive through the Black Canyon of the Gunnison is a beautiful drive, but not one you'd want to take if you're in a hurry. I stopped at a couple overlooks and took several pictures.
I called Mom as I was approaching Delta, CO (her hometown) and she was surprised that I'd taken that route home. She told me she had fixed dinner for me expecting me there earlier, so I had to keep moving, without any stops, in order to get to her home while the dinner was still edible.
