Our Trip To Royal Gorge

This year for Christmas our girls, their hubby's and families gave us a wonderful gift~a train trip at Royal Gorge in Canon City Colorado. We actually got to see areas of Colorado that we haven't been to before so that was really fun. One grandson was sick so our group was smaller than normal and hopefully in the spring the other family can go. Pictured above are the newest baby...she is 3 mos old. How time flies! One grandson from our other daughter came with us and he and his cousin had a great time. As far as Shannon is concerned John walks on water. She adores him! Although it was a long drive all of us had a great day and what a great gift. We'd like to go back in the spring and see wildlife and get a different view of the area but it was fun seeing the canyon covered in snow. The weather cooperated with us and because it was a holiday weekend traffic wasn't too bad.


  1. Noreen,
    What fun! I have been to the Royal Gorge! It is an amazing view and such a large suspension bridge!
    What a lovely family you have!

  2. Noreen,

    What an exciting gift from your loved ones and what a special and memorable trip :o)


  3. Wow! That sounds like a lot of fun. It's always fun to mix it up and do different things. Because I am a native, I have never taken that train trip. It would be fun. You know what I mean about growing up in an area and taking it for granite? Well we are cheap too. If it cost to much, we put it off. (o: How did the girls like the little cribs?

  4. Hi Noreen ~

    What a nice Christmas Gift! We have been to the Royal Gorge several times. We have done the Aerial Tram, Incline Railroad and of course the Bridge. It has been a few years since we have been there. I checked their website and it looks as if they have added some things since we were last there. We have never been there when there was snow. It looks like you all had a wonderful memory making trip.

    Simple blessings!
    Hugs ~
