The Royal Gorge is a major tourist attraction located west of Canon City, Colorado with a $23 hefty entry fee. The main attraction here is the Royal Gorge Bridge, America's highest suspension bridge.

Royal Gorge was the first Motorcycle Trip the me and my Wife ever took together back in 2004. I was a great trip back and looks as awesome now as it did back then.
