Coloring, Bridges, and lots of screaming!
Even though the girls have now gone home (holding back sadness...) We wanted to give a final update!
We went to Canon City, Colorado, home of the worlds HIGHEST extension bridge!! Knowing well that Kenzie is terrified of heights, we drove across it. (Video up soon). The bridge deck hangs 1,053 feet above the Arkansas River, and the bridge is billed as the highest suspension bridge in the world. The Royal Gorge Railroad runs under the bridge along the base of Royal Gorge. The bridge is 1260 feet long and 18 feet wide, with a wooden walkway with 1292 planks. The bridge is suspended from towers that are 150 feet high. Scary!!!
Despite the crazy height, it was beautiful, absolutely beautiful!! The drive roundtrip was 11 hours....yikes...Kennadi did NOT take well to that. Ccce is used to road trips, but poor Kennadi didn't want to be in the car!!
In a few weeks, we're picking up Kenzie to take her white water rafting for her birthday!
Thanks for coming to visit girls!
