Until recently, the suspension bridge over Colorado's spectacularly beautiful Royal Gorge was the highest in the world, at 955 feet above the Arkansas River.

The bridge has a plank road that is a bit scary to drive over, but worth the butterflies! The car in one image here provides a sense of the bridge's scale.

Other images here show some of Colorado's "fourteeners" (peaks over 14,000 feet), the headwaters of the Colorado River, and the Arkansas River valley.
