Raft N Rail

What a great day! Lots of fun was had by all. We drove down to Canon City to Echo Canyon Expeditions where we got outfitted for our run down Bighorn Sheep Canyon on the Arkansas River.
What a blast! While several rafters got tossed out of their boats, nobody from our party took a swim.
We must be a family of natural born rafters.
After we took out we were whisked away to a secret railroad station where the Royal Gorge Route train
Royal Gorge Locomotive
took us for a very scenic (though short) ride into Royal Gorge. We were served lunch on the train as well. However, some people on the train didn't get their food until the ride was practically over. All in all a great time though.
