Royal Gorge Route

We took a day trip out from Colorado Springs to Canon City. It’s a prison town, with 13 prisons in and surrounding the city. I absolutely LOVE riding trains, so I was super excited to take the Royal Gorge Route Railroad through the amazing Colorado landscape. The train ride was about two hours, out and back. On board, we had assigned indoor seats, but we could also go to the outdoor car. The train offered food and drinks as well, which Brian and I took advantage of. We passed under the highest suspension bridge in the US and along a ton of white water rafters in the river. Canon City doesn’t look like much, but there is actually a ton of outdoor adventure tourism to explore. I definitely plan on making a trip back.
