Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Here's the Royal Gorge bridge in southwestern Colorado. It was built as a tourist attraction and is completely pointless, as the road is only a single lane and doesn't lead to anywhere. It's about 1000 feet above the river. There's a tourist train that goes along the Arkansas river at the bottom of the gorge, and this is a very popular place for rafting and skydiving (off the bridge).

That's some bridge!  I bet it would feel pretty interesting out in the middle during a high wind.
