For me, this was the "money shot" for the day. The Canon City Royal Gorge tourist train is making its way back east through the canyon from Parkdale. The train is crossing over Hanging Bridge in this shot. This part of the gorge was so narrow, there were no outcroppings to build the rail over. So, a bridge was built that was suspended from above (note the trusses). Amazing concept...even more so because it was thought up and built in the 1879!
